Sharing this from my fellow artists from Tuldok Animation Studios. This is our short film adaptation of the Bernardo Carpio story. We never thought that jumpstarting this animated short would have this personal impact to us involved in the project, given the entire world is currently at a halt. Suddenly, we realized how the lockdown and this story have something in common... The Bernardo Carpio Film Call for Character Design First, we hope you are coping up well in these trying times. As we find our own ways to help while keeping ourselves sane, safe, and healthy being more than halfway through the lockdown, we have decided to try to continue our 15-minute animated film project, the adaptation of the Legend of Bernardo Carpio, despite the halt of supposed funding opportunities. We still have one expected funding to continue, which gives us a ray of hope.We’re inviting artists to an experimental collaboration project for character designs for this short film. Although not directly related to the pandemic in our midst, the plight of Bernardo Carpio, the leader of the Filipino revolution against the Spaniards, hits very close to home to Filipinos currently locked down inside homes or facing the frontlines. This adaptation focuses on the entrapment of Bernardo Carpio inside the 2 Clashing Boulders in Montalban, Rizal. It is believed that once he finally breaks free from being locked down underground, it will mark the liberation of Filipinos from the oppression of their greedy leaders.As we try to help in our own ways and find some means to normalize our lives, make sense of things, and keep ourselves mentally and physically healthy, working on this passion project is something that we feel may help us, as well as other artists who have some means to pursue creative endeavors right now while locked up inside
