Alberto Vazquez's Sangre De Unicorno. The action pixel. @theactionpixelThis is the type of animation we need to show kids who believe in unicorns or cries when you tell them to put away their cute cuddly toys after playing with them.

Ever wondered why Teddy Bears are so snuggly-wuggly cute? Well, the answer to that is hinted in the title. And they have to consume lots of it.

Having gotten into a bountiful selection of festivals, we can honestly say there are kids out there who will be having some real trippy waking-dreams after watching Sangre De Unicorno, which literally translates as “Unicorn Blood”. Yah, nothing weird here.

The animation was done by Alberto Vazquez, produced in part by Canal+.

We like ruining kids fantasies like the next guy, the psychopathic child-like scratchings and ‘unclean’ animation went a long way to drive home a narrative’s distorted parable/fairytale feel you’d get from a real old-school cautionary tale. The red tint is a nice touch too, reminded me of a terrible nightmare I had once as a kid.
