Prado’s ‘Sea’ sails Latido to Cannes

'Sound' first pic for Continental Animacion

CANNES — Spanish sales consortium Latido Films has added toon pic “De Profundis — The Sound of the Sea” to its Cannes slate.

The film is the first from Continental Animacion, the new toon division of expanding Spanish film-TV house Continental Prods.

“Sound” is directed by Miguelanxo Prado, known in Europe as a comicbook author oriented toward social issues and in the U.S. as a character creator and style director on the animation series “Men in Black” and “Starship Troopers.” He also scripted “Chalk Trace,” which was optioned by Miramax Films.

“Sound,” Prado’s passion project, is the story of a painter who dies in a shipwreck and sinks to the ocean floor. It digitizes Prado’s cloth oil paintings and acrylics portraying the seascape and its characters. Project will be completed in 15 months.

Based in Galicia, Continental Animacion adds weight to the region’s growing animation talent. The northwest corner of Spain is already home to Dygra Films and Filmax’s Brenn animation studios.

Continental Animacion is teaming with Portugal’s Zeppelin Films on a second toon film, Luis da Matta Almeida’s “The Adventures of Fearless John,” about a boy living in a seemingly perfect society.
