"It's true that I still do not believe in it." And I did not say it with fake modesty because it was very complicated, though I had expectations. A total of 400 papers were submitted, of which 44 were selected and assigned only nine, We are competing against Brazil, Mexico and Spain, which is in terms of animation far ahead of our opportunities. I understand that what they estimated was the concept of a project, because in technical matters others had millions of budgets, "said Moyano bugle.
The film can be seen on Saturdays, Sundays and Sundays at 17 o'clock in the Platenser Planetarium (Av. Iraola and Calle 118) with a free entrance.

However, achieving this goal was a major technical challenge, as most industries use the concept of a rectangular screen and had to adapt to a circular model, "explains Moyano.
