Lila

By Carlos Lascano | Animation
A dreamy artist uses her imagination to augment her mundane life.

Lila is a dreamy girl whose imaginative and playful drawings take on a surreal life of their own. Whether she sits at a coffee shop, hangs out at a park or walks down a street, her imagination and sketches add in some magic lost by those around her.

Madrid-based director and animator Carlos Lascano has created a fairytale-like short — using a beautiful blend of live-action and animation elements. The whimsical tone underlies a deeper message of hope and optimism in the face of a cold and confusing world. Her eyes beaming with surprise, love and wonder.

“Lila” is the last film in Lascano’s aesthetic trilogy, starting in 2008 with “A Short Love Story In Stop Motion,” then followed in 2011 by “A Shadow of Blue.” Produced on shoestring budgets, he proves that great storytelling don’t have to cost a fortune — just a lot of hard work and a bit of creativity.
