Spanish Republic

72 hours to the Republic (postpo)

On April 12, 1931, Spain was still a Monarchist country, but the next day woke up a Republican one. We aimed to recreate the intense hours between the elections and the exile of the King, on April 14. The Republican period was short, since in 1936 Franco’s military uprising would trigger the Spanish Civil War.

Our focus was on make still images alive with a post-production job, this was specially tricky since the piece recreated the dialogues of the main personalities and more crucial moments of those 3 days.

In order to do so, we did a lot of postproduction work and we used MyHeritage app to add movement to some of the portraits of the main characters.

This is a demo of this work:
