Lost Atlantis
Reebok 

LOST ATLANTIS is a short film based on the artwork of David Mendez Alonso, animated by Dante Zaballa. We felt that by mixing their personal styles we could get an even cooler new style, and we weren't mistaken. Adding David´s fresh style to Dante´s rhythm left us with a piece to remember. This production combined traditional animation (frame by frame) with an exceptional clean-up process: more than 1,200 images were drawn by Dante and hand-painted with acrylics by David. This tandem collaboration resulted in vibrant animation over a surreal plot where skiing fish, underwater tennis championships and waves of hooligans all coexist. A special thanks to the people of Reebok Spain who commissioned this short film celebrating the 25th Birthday of their ultra famous Ventilator shoes.
