Mairena 'Before The Sun' by Rafael Aflalo
Rafael Aflalo takes a resourceful approach to his animated video for Mairena's Before The Sun - a classic story of space exploration that employs classic methods in a refreshing way.
Combining traditional animation with stock photos and various background textures, the multiformat visual pays homage to space exploration and the prospect of a new life on another planet. It also saves its punchline to the final seconds.
Feeling reminiscent of the early days of animation, whilst including a handful of contemporary techniques - the video is a boundless and experimental take on a familiar concept.
It reflects on humanity's scary prospect of having to abandon Earth and search for a fresh start in a new planet.
"The video was made using primarily archive images from NASA, with it's vast possibilities, and yet limitations. Often creative choices had to be reimagined to fit the available material, resulting at times in pleasing unexpected results.
"It reflects on humanity's scary prospect of having to abandon Earth and search for a fresh start in a new planet. The film was made in Cinemascope format, paying homage to early experimentations from the film industry, a time when science fiction was approached more naively and often blended with the fantasy genre."
