Lego: los héroes de CubeDude

lego300x200
Angus McLane, animador jefe de Pixar, continúa su saga de 120 héroes en bloquecitos, íconos todos de la cultura pop, y le explica a zarpado.com cómo se hace. ¡Fiebre en bloque!.

Sos un fan, y no estás solo. Hay toda una comunidad híper activa en cuanto a Lego.
Es que me emocionan los Legos desde que tengo memoria. Ahora, te inspirás fácil, la comunidad de fans de Lego es muy grande. Veo cosas similares a las mías que me sorprenden muchísimo. Sin Internet, además, esto no existiría. La habilidad de mostrar y compartir online fue lo que nos inspiró a todos los que creamos con Lego y formamos una comunidad. La gente ve que es posible, que otro lo hace mejor, y vos querés mejorar lo que el otro hace. Va a seguir creciendo, te lo aseguro, las creaciones Lego solo están limitadas por la mente del constructor. Las posibilidades, digamos, son infinitas.

¿De dónde viene la idea de los CubeDudes?
La idea de los CubeDudes salió de un patrón de necesidad, algo que pudiera hacer rápido y que no me tomara mucho espacio. Esto es algo irónico, ya que tengo 220 CubeDudes. Primero fue Snake Eyes, el ninja de G.I Joe, con más cabeza que cuerpo, ya que los CubeDudes son un tanto deformes, me parecía más appealing que a una escala normal. Terminé, ¡y quería hacer más! Empecé con una lista enorme y recién hoy estoy a medias. Les tengo amor, tengo que verles algo que dé gracioso en forma CubeDude, aunque otros constructores me ganan de mano a veces. Larry Lars es muy bueno, se los recomiendo a todos. Primero viene la idea, buscar referencias, vivir un poco en Google Images. Tengo 20 recipientes grandes con elementos básicos, y una serie de principios.

Te debés frustrar mucho cuando no aparece la pieza correcta.

¡Mucho! Muchas de las partes que no puedo encontrar y necesito son muy raras o jamás existieron. Lego Digital Designer es una herramienta maravillosa, pero la selección de piezas es algo limitada. Peeron.com tiene muchísimas partes, listas de las partes de todos los sets en décadas de Lego. Uso mucho bricklink.com, que es una red internacional de vendedores de ladrillos. Trato de ser lo más fiel posible a la paleta del original. Por ejemplo, Lego casi hi hace o hizo piezas en púrpura oscuro, así que no puedo hacer un buen Skeletor de He-Man. Y tampoco voy a mostrar en mi Flickr algo que no me convence. Tuve un C-3PO de Star Wars, pero no salió tan bien, el original es tan icónico y simple que no le hice justicia.

¿Esto es una especie de moda, o es una tendencia realmente válida en el arte?

Cuando Lego anunció en 2003 que tuvo problemas financieros, tuve miedo de que se disolviera. Ahora, estoy menos preocupado, y no estoy tan seguro de que Lego responda a una moda. Si sos un adolescente preocupado por dejar atrás tu infancia, seguro que no. Para mí, Lego define el cool, pero es por lo que yo quiero y puedo hacer con Lego. De verdad es importante para mí. CubeDude va a seguir todo lo que se pueda. No me muevo de esto.

No podemos dejar de preguntarte por Pixar. Debe ser como trabajar en un parque de diversiones… ¡o algo así!

Hice muchas cosas en Pixar, trabajé en el departamento de guión, el de arte. Hice animaciones en cada film de Pixar excepto la primer “Toy Story”, y tuve la suerte enorme de dirigir “Burn-E”, un corto especial para el DVD de “Wall-E.” Hace 13 años que trabajo para Pixar, y es muy serio, nos tomamos muy a pecho la calidad, podés frustrate fácil. Aunque es diez veces mejor que estar en un banco. De todas formas, ya escuché la analogía del parque de diversiones o la fábrica de sueños. Pero también pregúntense: ¿cuáles son las condiciones laborales? ¿Hay buen plan de odontología? Los sueños son muy lindos cuando los ves terminados, ¿pero es fácil hacerlo? Te digo que es una tonelada de trabajo. Como los CubeDudes.
