Urban Beasts is a portrait of the stress of daily life in the city, where respect for our fellow man is forgotten. At a crosswalk there are two opposites: pedestrians and motorists. The characters are transformed, they are seen as "beasts" by their opposite. An old lady is at risk, she is seen by a desperate motorist as a slow cockroach that does not let her move forward.

In addition to the short film, a degree thesis was carried out at UNAM. 

With theoretical-practical research on gestural cartoon. It develops topics such as traditional animated drawing, the types of animation (experimental, orthodox, development), an introduction to animated techniques, and above all, the creation process of the animated short: Urban Beasts (Script, storyboard, character design, shooting chart, animation, editing and post-production)
