Co - Director´s biography:

Gervasio Rodriguez Traverso and Pablo A. Díaz started working as a team while studying Image & Sound Design at Buenos Aires University (UBA), where they took classes with Rodolfo Saenz Valiente, full professor and head of the Animation Department.
In 2003 they finished “SuperBot”, their first animated short film.
In 2004 they founded Trexel Animation, a studio dedicated to the production of CGI material. Since then they have been working in prestigious projects including films, TV shows, advertistments and web sites.
With the production of their second animated short film, “”A” copy” (2009), they are moving on to a new stage in which the production of their own personal material will take the central spot in the studio.
