The Valiant Valencian animated short now in production
Posted 4 weeks ago and submitted by Eric Trujillo | Share link:

The Valiant Valencian is an animated 12-15 minute animated short. It tells the story of a random hero that could’ve changed the course of Spanish history. I say ‘could’ve’ because the urban myth has been told in many different ways and this is one of them. I was intrigued by the story of the bat included on the emblem and flag of Valencia and all over the Valencian Community in Spain.

There are three main characters for the story: The bat, who is the hero. King James 1 and the narrator, Vicenté. These initial character designs are in my gallery. The supporting cast would be James’ troops, the Moors tactical ambush group, and the Valencian crowd in the end scene.

Autonomous Rhinoceros Films (my film and animation studio) and StudioTrujillo (my creative studio) is scheduled to be done with the production the end of the first quarter 2020.
