Headless studio reel 2010 from Headless Productions on Vimeo.

"Headless Productions is a small independent animation studio founded by Adrian Garcia, Alfredo Torres and Victor Maldonado. We're based in Barcelona.

This is our current studio reel. There's some of the stuff we did in the past and some of the stuff we'll do in the future. Including sneak peeks to some of our future projects."

Hello, all! When we were in the Asian Art Museum, I saw a sculpture by Akio Takamori (the elegant little sleeper in a plexi box on the floor) which reminded me to remind you that he'll be speaking this Wednesday, May 12th, at 5pm in the Art Center.
