The film tells the story of the Mr. Kat & Friends ‘Cosmic Panda’ character as his true nature is revealed

Mr. Kat & Friends Presents: ‘The Enlightenment of Cosmic Panda’
Mr. Kat & Friends presents: ‘The Enlightenment of Cosmic Panda’ Nexus Studios’ creator Jaime Álvarez Sobreviela, in partnership with film and design studio Le Cube and composer David Kamp, today announced the general release of 50’ animated film ‘The Enlightenment of Cosmic Panda’ originally premiered at this year’s OFFF festival and now available to watch here:

The latest artist collaboration from the ‘Mr Kat & Friends’ universe, the film combines Jaime’s beautifully crafted world populated with a wealth of exquisitely modelled Kawaii characters with hand painted cell animation and 3D.

The film tells the story of the Mr. Kat & Friends ‘Cosmic Panda’ character as his true nature is revealed.   The animation begins with Cosmic Panda’s calm self-fulfilment and expands to illustrate the deconstruction of his mind with explosions of painted colours until he finds calm again.

Speaking of how the animation project came about Jaime says: “Le Cube and I met in Cutout Fest Mexico where we were invited to speak. Turns out we got along very well, they liked the Mr. Kat & Friends brand and the latest Mr. Kat collaboration was born.”

Juan Manuel Freire (Le Cube) notes: “We’re always looking for opportunities to mix techniques in our work.  The mixing between the environments here of the exterior (Cosmic Panda’s real universe) and the interior (his mind) was a perfect excuse to play with our favourite techniques 2D cell animation and 3D”.
