Hi,

This movie it is showing now on spanish cinema.

I went to see it today, and for those that like good histories with magic, it is a MUST. It happens on an unknown area of Spain at the end of the civil war, were a girl discover a magic labyrinth when see goes there to live. ( I do not want to spoil the film).

I loved the film on every aspect (aside I am a guillermo del Toro fan). But it surprised me, it is CafeFX has done the digital effects, beign this a main spanish film.

So I am wondering due that CafeFX is or was a Lightwave Studio, it has been used on the digital effects of this movie?

You can find the trailer of the movie on CafeFX web page on their gallery section.

And this is the spanish website of the movie, they didn't mention CafeFX I saw their involvement on the credits of the film.

Maybe Kurtis can dig this information out, and if lightwave has been used, put it something on the next newsletter or a study case?

Best regards,
David
