Le Cube and Final Frontier Creates Animated Coming of Age Story for Ciclope

The film pays homage to the 80s and 90s kids that have grown up to shape today’s creative landscape

Le Cube and Final Frontier Creates Animated Coming of Age Story for Ciclope

Le Cube and Final Frontier’s new film, created as opening titles for CICLOPE festival, is a semi-autobiographical journey back to the 1980s and '90s, fondly recalling formative days in the city, skating, sketching tattoos and exploring self expression. 

Le Cube creative director Ralph Karam explains: “Some might remember the ’80s and the ’90s as a 'simpler' time of Super Nintendo, b-ball, and hi-tops, but they was so much more. When you think about it, those iconic generations shaped today’s artistic and creative landscape, one of applied artistic skills and ideas, of different styles and paths in life. We can thank the adventurous 'creative industry generation' of the ’80s and 90’s for that.”

“The film is a glimpse into a life lived in close proximity to, and directly influenced by, the sons and daughters of the decades that gave us grunge, hip-hop and underground parties. It’s about growing up skating, excited to get your first tattoo, making art, whatever that meant to you. It’s about being part of that generation, a coming of age story, translated into relatable characters on to whom we can project our collective past."

Final Frontier executive producer Gustavo Karam says: “The moral of this story is simple, like the ending of a good Saturday morning cartoon: our stories shape who we are, just like we shape the life we want to live.”

CICLOPE Festival is an international conference and award show dedicated to craft in moving image. The event took place in Berlin in November 5th and 6th.
