Segundito – by Carlos & Roberto Valle
Stay still a second! A flash of genius by the brothers directors of The Chair of Life
Horacio and his wife have a son who does not stand still for a second. He does not stop even at dinner time. A pathological case, but the family in question lives in a clock as Horacio is the minute hand, his wife the hours hand and Segundito, their son, that of the latter.
Segundito is a very little and original animated short film, a flash of genius by the brothers Carlos and Roberto Valle (we appreciated their short doc The Chair of Life), who have turned their creativity into a beneficial work. The two animators have brought the clock to life and have put it up for sale online on www.auntie.es, with the goal of donating a part of the proceeds to charities that are helping children to beat cancer and other illnesses. Moreover, the brothers have set a challenge: for every 2,000 views that the short film gets on YouTube, they will take one “Segundito” clock to children who are spending their time in hospital.
It is not the first time that the Carlos and Roberto spend their art and their time for a social cause, many of the proceeds of the prizes that have won over the years have been donated to NGOs. Segundito is a simple and amusing short film: the Oscar winner Michaël Dudok de Wit (The Red Turtle) called it “a very sweet short film.”comments powered by Disqus
