It’s rare to find a studio whose work truly excites like that of Amautalab, a young outfit based out of LA, Buenos Aires and Lima, and headed by Carlos Battilana, Martin Jalfen and Julian Montesano. They’re employing a wide range of animation techniques, and across the board their work has an incredibly fresh and funky aesthetic. A few of my favorite pieces: this stop-motion spot for Tokyo.Now about how Japan remade its image following WWII, super-lo-fi music vid for Anne Laplantine and a tripped-out CG/live combo for Resfest: Buenos Aires. Their stop-mo website Amautalab.com is a good bit of fun as well.
