What happens when an animator becomes a father? He makes a film. Directors Daniel Martínez Lara and Rafa Cano Méndez, along with former students of the animation school Pepe-School-Land and animators from other well-known studios in Spain, spent more than four years on this crowd animated labour of love. The award-winning short film, "Alike," follows Copi and his son, Paste, who he is trying to raise "right." "Children turn your world upside down," Lara says in a making-of video. "When you are a father, you often wonder what the best thing is for your children. This short movie intends to be a reflection in that sense."  There is not one word of dialogue in the film, but the message is loud and clear.
