Im often as interested in who is making things and why as what they’re making. WHAT this is, Bendito machine is an animated series of short episodes, created by Jossie Malis, Pau Martinez, Nacho Rodriguez, and produced by Zumbakamera. The series “tells the story of simple-minded organisms and their relationship with machines, and explores the catastrophic evolution of gentle creatures and their bond with technology. Stylistically its meant to harken back to the silhouetted look of magic lanterns and shadow theater.
