Hello! My name is Richard Forero and I'm originally from Bogotá, Colombia. My passion is animation, so that's why I moved to Vancouver, BC; pursuing my dream as an Animator in the 1 year-long program at Vancouver Film School. I wanted to improve my technical and artistic skills so that I can provide a higher quality work.

I really love to bring characters to life with a singular personality, in this short film, I am giving life to "Cubie", a cute little robot from another galaxy that got teleported and is trying to meet new friends in our human world. I had the chance to model, texture, rig and give a cute personality to this little guy. This short film intends to inspire never giving up, no matter the conditions or how hard the situation becomes, you just have to keep going, and suddenly everything will change in your favor.
