Superframe: Screen confessions of a life long animator trailer

Superframe is a story of immigration, of artistic and personal challenges, a story of invention and creativity in the face of adversity, a story of following your dreams, and confronting stage 4 cancer with humor… and animation, of course.

As such, Eduardo’s body of animated work, which reflects the revolutionary technological advances in the industry over the last 50 years, will be the framing device for the documentary.

To complement the body of work, original animation created specifically for the program by a team of animators and graphic artists will visually and conceptually tie together the different phases, both artistic and personal, of Eduardo’s life.

Additionally, the 30 minute documentary will incorporate interviews and observational scenes with Eduardo, his family and colleagues, as well as archival footage and photographs to reveal the relationship between his animation and his personal story.
