Making of Agapito

A craft work

Project Description

Agapito is a video clip of the song by La ChicaCharcos and The Katiuskas Band made in stop motion animation.

Agapito is a vampire mosquito who lives with his family. Everyone likes to go to the cemetery tavern every night to drink shots of fresh blood, but all he cares about is music. He plays the trumpet and has always dreamed of playing in a real orchestra.

One day, Agapito leaves the niche and travels far from home, where he meets the members of the musical group “La ChicaCharcos & The Katiuskas Band”. From that moment on, he will embark on an adventure that will lead him to stardom as a trumpeter.
