Was für ein wunderbarer Film, welch gelungene Umsetzung der Macht der Vorstellungskraft. In wohl komponierten Bildern und changierenden Filmtechniken folgen wir einem aus Papier gebastelten blauen Schmetterling, den ein auf der Parkbank sitzendes Mädchen gebastelt hat. Im Netzfilmblog auf Zeitonline.de wird das kleine Meisterwerk (siehe Auszeichnungen) zu recht mit den Worten

Eine Ode auf die Vorstellungskraft.

vorgestellt: Licht und Schatten: “A Shadow of Blue”.

Der argentinische Filmemacher Carlos Lascano ist für diesen und weitere Animationsfilme mit vielen Preisen ausgezeichnet worden. Eine interesante künstlerische Vita, die den Meister des Mash-Ups der unterschiedlichsten Filmtechniken von Argentinien über Barcelona nach Madrid führte. Die aktuellste Phase seines Schaffens kann der Wikipedia entnommen werden:

In 2009 and 2010 he focused mainly on advertisement, working on large campaigns for Al Balad Newspaper in Lebanon, Oscillococcinum in France, Popsicle Ice Pops in the US, and TetraPak in Russia[6]. During 2010 he also directed the music video J’ai pas le temps for French singer Gabi. The video was featured at the third episode of the Zacuto’s Emmy award winning web series The Great Camera Shootout [7], in Chicago, where Lascano also participated as a guest. Later on that year, he was invited by Vimeo to participate as a judge for the Animation Category of their first festival, Vimeo Festival + Awards [8], held in New York on October 9th, 2010, next to other award-winning filmmakers such as David Lynch, Nicolas Schmerkin and Vincent Laforet.

In 2011 he was commissioned by Amnesty International to write and direct an animated spot for their 50th anniversary. The original score was composed by the Academy Award Winner Hans Zimmer and the Academy Award Nominee Lorne Balfe, and the production took place in Prague between his own company, DreamLife Studio and Eallin Motion Art. The spot was internationally released by Amnesty International on May 28 th, 2011, on the day its 50th anniversary was commemorated.

Owner of a very personal style, his mixing of digital tools and real objects brought a new organic aesthetic concept[jargon] to animation, making Carlos achieve international recognition,[9] and setting him on the sight of large advertisement companies. Eallin Motion Art [10] (Czech Republic), Bent Image Lab (USA and Canada), Cube (France), Boiron (France) and Trix (Portugal), are some of the companies he is currently working with.
