Chile-Mexico-Colombia Axis Mount Kids Pic ‘Elephant, The Horse’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Invercine, Traziende and Rhayuela Team Up

Not enough kid pics are made by Latin Americans for Latino families. In a bid to address this void, leading producers from Chile, Mexico and Colombia banded together to co-produce the $1.2 million live-action/animation adventure drama, “Elephant, The Horse” by Andres Waissbluth. “We need to create our own ‘Disney’ studio here,” noted Waissbluth.

Backed by Mexico’s Leo Zimbron of Traziende Films (“We Are the Nobles”), Colombia’s Federico Duran of Rhayuela (“Alias Maria”) and Chile’s Matias and Macarena Cardona of Invercine Prods., “Elephant, the Horse” was shot in Chile and post- produced in Mexico. Pic has been running the festival gauntlet, starting with Cartegena, Guadalajara and Miami.

“Elephant, the Horse” is about two brothers whose dying grandfather’s wish was to have them to save his horse from the slaughterhouse. When the horse is kidnapped by a traveling circus, the siblings embark on an adventure that will lead them to new discoveries, including the origins of the horse’s odd name.

“Yes, it’s difficult to work with animals and children, but even tougher to deal with animation and special effects if you’ve had scant experience in those fields,” said Waissbluth. Pic has about 10 minutes of animation integrated into the live action story and some 100 VFX shots.

BF Films is slated to release “Elephant” in Chile and Peru on August 4, while Mexico’s Videocine will release it in the fall. Talks with TV and theatrical distributors are still ongoing in Colombia.
