Discover the works of Mauro Carraro. Born in Italy, he studied animation at French school MoPA (named Supinfocom Arles at the time). His graduation short film is Matatoro, a surreal reinterpretation of bullfighting. He tends to prefer a very stylized approach over realistic rendering.
Currently based in Geneva, he recently directed a new short film: Baroudeur. The movie premiere will take place during the Animac Festival in March. The short will then be screened in various festivals in Europe.
The shorts movies he directed since he graduated are not available online: some are still screened at festivals, while the rights of others have been sold to TV channels. However, watching the trailers will give you an idea of his style.
- Baroudeur: “My old friend Walter has been living in his truck, Caronte, with his dog Rogna for ten years now. In an interview, he opens the doors of his four-wheeled home and tells us the anecdotes of his life as a modern wanderer.” Mauro Carraro mainly used 3ds Max and After Effects to create this short film.
- 59 Secondi (2017): “59 seconds is short when it comes to changing the destinies of two people, of an entire region, or of a country, but it can seem like a long time when the earth is trembling.”
- Aubade (2014): “A black sun rises on Leman Lake. In a surrealist backlit scene, swimmers and birds witness the spectacle of the dawn, hypnotized by the music of a cellist.”
- Hasta Santiago (2013): “The Mapo’s journey on the St James Way. On this legendary route he will cross cities and will meet other walkers who do not necessarily carry their backpack.”
- Matatoro (2010): “The hermetic world of bullfighting and its public, here reinvented and reinterpreted”. Co-directed by Mauro Carraro, Raphaël Calamote, Jérémy Pasquet while studying animation at Supinfocom Arles (now known as MoPA).
- Muzorama (2008), co-directed in six weeks alongside Elsa Brehin, Raphaël Calamote, Maxime Cazaux, Emilien Davaud, Laurent Monneron, Axel Tillement. This film is inspired by the work of French illustrator Jean-Philippe Masson aka Muzo.
- Petit Pas (2008): “modern lesson of history: what really happened at the first moon landing.”
