Sergio Pablos talks about the making of Klaus

The Christmas film that Netflix will offer to all its users is Klaus, an original film made with the most classic animation techniques that will be able to warm the hearts of its viewers.
Klaus takls about Jesper, the postal academy's worst student, stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva, and discovers Klaus, a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbors, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care.

The film is designed and created by Sergio Pablos, legendary Spanish animator who also wrote Despicable Me and contributor to Disney, DreamWorks Animation and Blue Sky Studios, here as author and director to his SPA Studios in Madrid.

The approach used for its realization follows in the footsteps of the most traditional animation techniques, with freehand drawings, but integrated in the digital world, which can guarantee a better use of nuances and volume to the elements.

Available on selected theaters in US November 8 and on Netflix November 15, here the Making Of featurette:
