Talent Explorers

Trailer, 2020


Talent Explorers, an ambitious CG animated project that is being produced in collaboration between Barça Studios and Sony Music Latin Iberia.

In Talent Explorers, Max, Roc and Lynda, a group of very special scouts who travel all around the world looking for new talent to put together a team to represent Barça in a tournament. They will discover different children from different backgrounds, such as Marco, Hao, Aisha and Lyli, who all have very special skills. Talent Explorers, an ambitious animated project that is being produced by FC Barcelona’s audiovisual production factory in collaboration with Sony Music Latin Iberia (whose media content division is now headed by Sergi Reitg), with whom the Club signed a strategic agreement last summer to create unique entertainment experiences and promote ideas that connect music and sport to fans around the world. 

Maga Animation Studio took care of the CG production and animation of the launch trailer, from modeling, rigging and animation to the final output (light, render, comp & FX). A great collaboration between Spain, Italy and USA, we joined forces with international talented artists and studios such as the Academy Award nominee Tab Murphy, (TarzanBrother BearThe Hunchback of Notre DameTeen Titans). Tomavision for pre-production, concept development, and Jorge Blanco, director of Spain’s top-grossing home-grown animation, Planet 51, and of Goya Award winner, serves as creative director on the series.
