Animation Complete!
 
We are so pleased to have a really beautiful piece of animation in the documentary . Thanks so much Juan . I am very grateful that Damo connected us!

Hi! My name is Juan Barabani.
 

I was very lucky to create the animation sequence for this amazing movie.
I found  Damo´s music through a friend of mine Cristian, he put some Can records on while we were at work in a very sad office. With this music we did escape from there to another surreal world.

From then my perspective to music changed forever. This friend and I started playing music together and made a band named NUEZ. We improvised and recorded every session and this opened a new horizon for me. Then I start playing music with many people, and started another band called PAN with my lovely partner Victoria.
 
 
 
My partner and I play live a lot in Buenos Aires and met so many  people that play “experimental“ music. One of these guys, Maximo, brings Damo to Cordoba (Argentina) and invited us to be part of the network to play with Damo Suzuki. We just couldnt believe it! We exploded with happiness.
 
 
animation blog
 
I was also  asked to make the poster of the gig... Double happy!! I met him there. We played together, and the energy made us float until today. We don't talk too much with him, only we look each other in the eyes and everything was there...

One day I received a message from Michelle (the director of Energy) , and she told me that the poster I had created is featured in the book  "I am Damo Suzuki" by Paul Woods. Damo wanted to send me a book. She told me too about her movie about Damo and I don't know why I offered to her my skills of animator for the movie... even not knowing how to make the animation on my own... but she loved the idea and said that she had a dream sequence from Damo about a time he was in hospital. She is very generous person. And from there I tried to discover how to make the animation in  my own way... and  it was a very fun and mad process, but very magical seeing it from here.


Thanks Michelle, thanks Damo!
E N E R G Y !

Energy : A Documentary about Damo Suzuki - Update

 

Hi everyone ,


Thanks so much for the patience and the support during this campaign. You have  helped me massively to complete this beautiful story .

Energy , Damo Suzuki - Feature Documentary - Hebden bridge Trades Club

 

I am almost there with the edit .


It is currently 2 hours and I need to trim it here and there.  It has been a wonderful journey.

I also must clear all archive footage used and have it approved before releasing the DVD/Blu-ray. 

Also I need to sort subtitles .

I understand all festivals only accept the film if it is a premiere, which means not yet released.

I am posting  this update for everyone that supported by purchasing the DVD and Blu - Ray . There is a delay and in the meanwhile I hope you can forgive the delay .

I will send you protected password footage of a live song and deleted scenes .

 I will keep sending regular updates on the edit  progression for you also .


Thanks so much for your patience
