The Inner Life


The Inner Life is a comedy about the wacky lives of a family of bacteria, viruses and all sorts of microorganisms that are learning to coexist in mysterious and vast place: the human body

Mertixell is a seven-year-old girl who is discovering her body and the things that happen in it every day. But she doesn't know that the inside of her body is a colorful and unpredictable micro-universe where beings just as fantastic as her reside. In each of the episodes, we will witness her conflicts, disagreements, reconciliations, and how their characters clash or how they are forced to ally for the common good. Always with a humorous tone and full of fun gags that will make the little ones and adults alike burst into laughter.

Director’s statement
There are two things driving this project. On one hand, it's the love for animation, specifically stop motion animation, a technique as old as cinema itself, where craftsmanship takes precedence over digital techniques, giving the images a special warmth. On the other hand, it's an unconditional love for the world of childhood, every input received by a child, is incredibly important for their personal development. Moreover, being a parent and observing, analyzing all the content that our young receivers, our children, process every day, makes one aware of the total responsibility of creating an audiovisual product for young children.
The Inner Life is a slapstick, where the essence of a character is understood simply by watching them walk, and conflicts are resolved with a facial expression and a pie in the face. It's a type of comedy that directly draws from the art of clowning, which transitioned from vaudeville theater to silent cinema and from there to animation classics.
