Video Spot

"Take It Easy has worked with MOTELX every since its first edition. As a member of Take, I have always been connected to MOTELX since that time. After directing last year's ad - which involved a gigantic monster made of monuments walking along a destroyed Lisbon - I became interested in reaching out to space. Space horror.
I also became interested in trying old special effects techniques, associated with horror cinema since its early days. I wanted to ditch 3D and return to make up and practical effects, constructing miniatures and models and creating latex monsters. 
Funny enough, that year I met a group of people whose combined talents seemed to be all the ingredients to make those wishes come true.
Taking the premise of the 1979 classic «Alien» (that for me encapsulates everything there is to know about horror in space) I built this scene about a confrontation between a girl and a diabolical being inside a huge freighter ship about to collide with an alien world.
This sequence started to grow in my hand and it finally exploded like a hand grenade. The ad became a short film and the short film became something even bigger.
Small questions that arouse during pre-production while designing the sequence, triggered even more questions, answers and details.
I became more knowledgeable about the girl, the monster and the ship. So when it finally came the time to present it to Take and the Festival, I knew it was something big and bold like never before."
