Tin House Reels: André da Loba
Tin House Reels is pleased to screen André da Loba’s “Tuttodunpezzo,” a short film about the too-perfect man. The kind of man who never loses patience, never forgets an item when he travels, and “doesn’t give his heart away to anyone.” One day, he falls into a hole so deep that he breaks in three — then marches on until he puts himself back together.
Da Loba created his animation with Illustrator, creating images reminiscent of linoleum prints, pairing the work with piano music by Renato Diz. Da Loba has said that the process of turning a printed book into a movie contains a balancing act between “a heavy-tangible-static version and a light-intangible-motion version—to see how [a] book [can] benefit from the moving image and vice versa.”
The film was awarded a Gold medal by the Society of Illustrators.
André da Loba is a published and exhibited artist whose work has received international acclaim. As an illustrator, animator, graphic designer, sculptor, and educator, Andre’s combination of curiosity, experience, knowledge and unknowing serves as the constant medium with which he creates and inspires. His work is an invitation and a challenge to change the world, however big or small it might be. Born in Portugal, he lives in Brooklyn where he is secretly happy.
