Kintsugi or Kintsukuroi, meaning “golden repair” was the idea that inspired me the edit of this short move. In fact, it is the centennial Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a special lacquer dusted with gold powder, silver or platinum. With this technique beautiful gold seams are made in the ceramic cracks, leating them visible and giving a unique look to the piece. Following this idea I tried to recreate the images as if they were old pieces, which had to be interlaced with “gold stitches”. I also wanted that there are scenes that remember the works in gold and ink of the old Japanese screens, which usually have several vertical panels. In the intro for example, I used this idea to get into the world suggested by the theme music, with moving panels in gold finish, moving and vibrating with sounds.

La edición de este corto la he hecho recordando el Kintsugi o Kintsukuroi, que significa “reparación de oro”. Es decir, es el arte japonés centenario de arreglar la cerámica rota con una laca especial espolvoreada con oro en polvo, plata o platino. Con esta técnica se realizan hermosas costuras de oro en las grietas de cerámica, dejándolas visibles y dando un aspecto único a la pieza. Siguiendo esta idea he intentado recrear las imágenes cómo si se tratara de piezas antiguas, que debían ser entrelazadas con “puntadas de oro”. Asimismo he querido que haya escenas que recuerden los trabajos en oro y tinta de los antiguos biombos japoneses, que suelen tener varios paneles verticales. En la intro por ejmplo, he usado esta idea para adentrarnos en el mundo sugerido por el tema musical, con paneles móviles en acabad en oro que van moviéndose y vibrando con el sonido.
