After three years, due to restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Pablo Buratti of Corrientes, who lives in Spain and has been painting for more than 10 years, imagines filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, with his family See you again and his native land. Since he decides to settle with his family in the homeland in search of new horizons, this is the first time that he has spent so much time away from his love, although his father, Carlos Buratti, explained to Norte de Corrientes: “We will never be far away.” Because even in times of pandemic, thanks to the magic of new technologies, with video calls we could enjoy seeing each other, feel the color of the other’s voice from any distance, and He filled this phase of our life with joy.
Pablo has been in Corrientes since tomorrow and will be sheltered by the loving love of his loved ones, who from the very beginning supported and encouraged him in his every decision in the pursuit of study and work. His parents encouraged him to go on a cultural educational exchange tour for a year. Thus, when he was only 17 years old, he settled in Canada and here he found a young man from those countries. There he completed his final year of high school. The young couple in which their exchange fell out, one spoke English and the other French, and they used it interchangeably, which helped them to improve their English base and learn a lot of French. Upon his return from Canada, he graduated as a graphic designer and worked briefly in family businesses (advertising and printing) and was again encouraged by his parents when there was an important advertising agency in Resistencia. The doors were opened for them. He took the same attitude when he won a scholarship to pursue a film/production career in Buenos Aires, and after graduating from there, he seriously considered the possibility of settling in Spain, as the country offered its professionals Due to the lack of opportunities, the possibility of settling in Spain was seriously considered. area.. and once again, with the support of his parents (Carlos and Dora), he travels with his wife to the Old Continent. And so began the story which later made him one of the closest people to the famous filmmaker Pablo Almodovar. “But there was never a separation. At that time it was possible—financially—and a year later we went to visit him. And then every two years and when he became financially established, we did it alternately,” His parents proudly explained.
Today he is recognized as a storyboard artist from Corrientes based in Spain, who worked with personalities such as Pedro Almodovar, Alex de la Iglesia or J.A. Bayona in the creation of works such as “30 Monadas”, “The Impossible” or “Dolore y Gloria”. Worked with. “. They have also participated in many commercials that we see every day on television, YouTube or social networks. In other words, its function is to capture on paper whatever is in the minds of these creators and create a kind of beacon This is known as the storyboard, on which all the departments involved in the production depend.
“A storyboard artist’s work has two purposes. First, to bring the filmmaker closer to the images that he has in his head and begin to bring them down to earth to plan what will be staged. This is his The first contact is the film he’s imagining, that he’s projecting in his head and with which he’s starting to put together his narrative structures from a visual standpoint”, he explained to Norte de Corrientes.
Thanks to the storyboard – he said – the camera and photography team know what shots the director wants to shoot and they start working based on that setting, analyzing the pros and cons, its possibilities, Which can be shocks. There the production also has a lot to say because one thing is for the director to tell you more or less what he envisions and another thing is to put it on paper. With this material, production can also begin to manage all the specific shooting requirements for planning the said scene.
Also the art department has drinks from storyboards. With this they adapt to the frame, identifying what the needs are in terms of places, sets, sets. And so they establish a more limited framework.
Storyboards are the technical period from which all departments begin fishing for their own information so that it can somehow be managed together with the production and director.
Pablo’s work is the first visual approximation to the ideas that the director has, although with the humility that characterizes him, he also points out that his work is not a necessary tool. “In fact, many movies run without storyboards. But it’s a very useful tool when it comes to putting a starting point on the scenes the director wants to make and then they get up in a shoot so the rest of the team has The information is very concrete, very clear, very visual and everything is very clear to be managed properly”, he remarked.
The young artist, who was last able to enjoy his family to the fullest in 2019, today embraced his parents again to feel the fragrance of his father’s home and his native land. The last time he was here was three and a half years ago—”in July 2019, for my birthday”—his father tells this media-. The specific detail—difficult to repeat—is that Carlos and Dora were able to gather together their five children, nine grandchildren, and their grandmothers and great-grandmothers on that occasion. “You see, I am very familiar and it is family, along with my friends, the greatest asset has been reaped in my earthly journey. The pandemic has left me unable to meet, with physical presence, with Pablo and my granddaughter Cassandra. Just over three years old, but every birthday or special event of every family member was present through technology, so hugs today would be, for many, long hugs that we shared with each other because in appearance he was always sentimental”, finished Carlos Buratti, leaving. s
“This book presents to me a dream come true that confirms that betting on one who dreams is usually worth it. I have a memory, back in September 2001, at El Deso ( arrived in Madrid, leaving the offices of Pedro (producer and producer. Agustin Almodovar), leaving the resume at the reception, and then said to his wife: ‘I just wanted to set foot on this site, I don’t think they’ll ever call me ‘”. But they called him and he is still there.
