Ricardo Moyano "Solo" (2002)
Ricardo Moyano’s film from 2002, Solo, is an atmospheric 3D short in which an elderly man snaps photographs of a variety of objects, pasting the developed images onto card to populate an otherwise empty life and home. A grey haired lady provides an unsuspecting model and possible companion in a film about loneliness. Rudy Gnutti and Manel Gil contribute a soundtrack to die for. The 3D characters are conventional enough but the transformation to cardboard cut-outs is very original and moving at the close. It was made at Univesidad Autonoma de Barcelona.
