Ezequiel Torres has been working in the animation industry for more than ten years. He started working in a small studio editing with Photoshop and soon learned some tricks to animate in After Effects. In 2011 he worked for a time in Flamboyant Paradise, where he had the opportunity to learn from Tonio Quairiat and Javier Lourenço.
This trajectory and experience helped him to found his own studio, Rudo, together with Pablo Roldán. From there they experiment in each piece they are commissioned and work hard to create animations that hook the viewer. In 2017 they published The Wolf a video that went viral in which Ezequiel worked for the most dynamic shots and that allowed him to learn and improve his vision of narrative shots, rhythms and sensations in the characters.
