“City” is one of the many productions pitching at Snack & Screen Argentina!, taking place Oct. 17 at Cannes’ Palais des Festivals.
“City” is a sci-fi thriller to be directed by Federico Moreno. It’s based on the same-named graphic novel by Ricardo Barreiro and Juan Giménez from the ‘80s, but updated in its iconography and plot, according to producer Enzo Mario Vendemmia at Vlexus Animation, which is developing the series alongside Mcfly Studio and Luty Artstudio.
“A contemporary plot follows Juan Lescano who, after arguing with his father, appears in a dazzling amalgam of cities from past and present, dwelled by murderous mobs, drones, sadistic cops, an astronaut, monsters and characters from fables,” Vendemmia explained.
The budgets of the projects range from $230,000 to $6.9 million; with an average budget of $1.7 million.
The 3rd edition of Snack & Screen Argentina! is backed by Argentina’s Incaa and Investment & Trade Promotion Agency.’
