We are thrilled to announce the launch of directorial tandem, Paloma, here at NERD Productions. Paloma is the meeting of two minds, Alicja Jasina and Lucas Borrás, coming together from different experiences and artistic backgrounds. The balance between these two directors, which reflects equality and diversity, is what makes their work truly unique. Alicja and Lucas thrive to create imaginative and visually poetic storytelling in a wide range of mediums, knowing no boundaries. With more than 10 years of experience they believe in creating compelling visuals that are supported by strong, conceptual ideas. "We try to find a strong concept behind every project. We are stimulated by good design and that’s what we strive for. We try not to over-complicate things and always bring it down to the essential, both in terms of design and story. We like mixed media and almost every type of animation so we always aim to pick the technique that works best with a story we want to tell. We do our best to keep a fresh unique approach with every project.” Paloma [embed]https://vimeo.com/243687745[/embed] Paloma’s work has been Academy Award Shortlisted, has received many awards including Art Directors Club and has won student Academy Award as well as a BAFTA.
