El Bravo and the Magic Sneakers is an exciting
new animated feature film project It's a modern fairy tale
based in New York's Latino community "El Barrio." This modern Robin
Hood adventure set to Latin rhythms and melodies is in English and
intended for adult and young audiences alike.
There has never been anything like it. In fact,
El Bravo promises to be the first modern animated feature with an Hispanic
intended for both Latino and general audiences.
It's a fantasy of good over evil with a positive message
for all Americans: "You can if you think you can!"
Read the story in a nutshell here.
Animated films all begin with a "storyboard"
— a series of
sketches picturing the scenes in order. We've encapsulated the story into
a brief video, using such sketches.
Also, songs for the
movie have already been written, and you can hear
musical samples here.
The creators (screenplay and
songs) are veterans of the New York theatre. The project has been a
collaboration among Hispanic and non-Hispanic writers, musicians and
Viva El Bravo!
