Claymation at it's best.
5 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hasta los Huesos (Down to the bone), is claymation at it's best. The directing style of Rene Castillo is unique and different, and that's what makes this short amazing and spectacular. The Cinematography is astounding, Sergio Ulloa does an excellent job, the lighting, the camera angles, the rack focuses, (which is very hard to do in animation) make this short slide to the top with flawless precision.

I loved this short film. It is by far, better than his first short, Sin Sosten (No Support, but Sin Sosten is still also a masterpiece of claymation. From a scale of 1 to 10, Sin Sosten would be a 10, and Hasta los Huesos a 15. I think Rene castillo should get to work, and do an animated feature, and team up again with Sergio Ulloa.
