If you don’t know the name of Alberto Mielgo, you will surely know his works. Born in 1979, Alberto is a world-famous Spanish art director and since he arrived in Hollywood he has collaborated at the creation of films that have become real masterpieces such as Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2. The latest project he worked on is nothing less than Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse, recently nominated for an Oscar in the Best Animated Film category.
In practice, Alberto was hired to direct the animation tests. The following video, published by the same author, contains the storyboards and animations that he thought and realized for the movie. Alberto Mielgo then said:
“I’m really happy to see that most of my shots on this early boards made it to the final film.”
