Mariscal's Animated Feature Chico & Rita

Did you know that the great cartoonist/designer Mariscal was making a feature film?

Javier Mariscal

It's called Chico & Rita, and is about a Cuban jazz pianist and a singer in the late 40s. The technique to create it sounds similar to that used by Richard Linklater in Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly--the whole film was filmed live action and then animated.

It's scheduled to come out in 2010.

  1. Hi Robert, nothing to do with Linklater's technique. In this case the life action was a guide for animators, but no software or rotoscoping at all. The characters have been animated on the traditional way, draw by draw, 125.000 of them to be aqurate. Cheers.
