Dragon

Soon-to-be father Danny takes a trip back to his childhood room in the search of his old epic dragon toy. This leads him to reunite with Nicolás, the imaginary friend he used to see as a kid, who can help him find the dragon, but only on the condition that he agrees to play with him, and his toys, like they did when they were kids.

Director Biography - Luigi Moreno Barragán

I was born in August 20, 1990 in Medellin, Colombia, and raised in León, México.

When I was a kid, I used to make films with my toys as actors and my eyes as the camera. Afterwards I would draw posters for my movies and give them away to my family. At thirteen I got my first camera and started to make shorts and sketches with my friends, including the trilogy of "Señor Peligro", a mad superhero (maybe more of a villain), and his assistant "Peligrín", homemade films we invented on the spot and in which we rotated roles as cameramen, directors, and actors.

I decided to study Animation, 5 years that became an opportunity to immerse in the world of 3D, but also travel, and study about different cultures, the world, and most importantly, myself.

I realized I was still keen on becoming a film director, so I decided to take a big step towards my dream and went to Madrid, Spain to study Directing for Film at Escuela TAI, where "Dragón" was born: A magical journey back to childhood, which I wrote and directed, and where I had the luck of working with an amazing talented team of 30 people, in a 1 day shoot.

Director Statement

Our goal with Dragon was always to ignite a fire of imagination and creativity on the audience, to invite them to reconnect with their own childhoods and just sit down on the floor, take out their old toys, and play.
