BOOGIE, el aceitoso

30 08 2009

Based on the character created by Roberto Fontanarrosa, my friend Marcelo Paez Cubells took the difficult task of finding a story to a comic written in closed episodes, with no continuity, writing the screenplay of “Boogie, el Aceitoso”. A film aimed at teen and adult audience with a violent, sexist and sadistic character. The animated feature was presented at the Annecy Animation Festival in France after winning the 6th place in the Zagreb Film Festival in Croatia. Produced by Illusion Studios and directed by Gustavo Cova, featuring the voices of Pablo Echarri and Nancy Dupláa. Full Dimensional Entertainment has developed a 3D version of the film and its release date in Argentina is October 1st.
