Puerto Rican filmmaker Enrique “Quique” Rivera, creator of the animated music video for Calle 13’s “Asi de grandes son las ideas,” will offer lectures and workshops on stop-motion animation later this month at the Carolina campus of the University of Puerto Rico.
The appearances, set for Jan. 22 and Jan. 24, are part of the “Sinestesias” Multi-disciplinary Cultural Agenda, UPR Carolina said.
Rivera, a UPR alumnus who also has a master’s degree from the California Institute of Arts, became internationally known last year for his work on the Calle 13 video.
The video debuted at the Cinefiesta International Short Film Festival in San Juan and has been screened at events such as the International Stop Motion Festival in Brazil, London’s Crystal Palace International Film Festival and the Bali International Film Festival in Indonesia.
Rivera’s work includes other animated short films, some of which have been exhibited in more than 40 international festivals.
One of them, “Menuda Urbe” (2010) won Honorable Mention at the 2011 Cinefiesta.
