In a three-day animation film workshop offered by the Media High School at BORG15, this crew used a cut-out technique to produce BNC – The Amazing Coco Girls. These very creative young people handled almost all the steps that went into the making of their short film, including the idea, storyboard and sound recordings. They received support from Peter Muzak, a member of the MUKATO animation film collective, who did the editing of the final cut and the audio. The project’s point of departure was merely a working title; otherwise, the young filmmakers enjoyed complete creative freedom. The choice of the theme—a mix of sexual exploitation, drug abuse, and traditional gender roles—was extremely exciting for these youngsters, above all the issues that also pose a challenge for adults and, especially, teachers. So began their confrontation with the world of prostitution run by a brutal pimp ... “This border town is where the action is. The hot babes dance on the tables for El Bastardo and ANYTHING you want is available. Because: ‘Purple bills don’t lie.’ But the time is ripe for changes, since … ‘We can do things differently.’ DON’T TAKE ANY SHIT! The result is a very lively, in-your-face animated film with an unexpected ending that alludes to other potential worldviews and offers viewers some food for thought.
