Alike Short Film

A short film called “Alike” was released and it’s message is simple… Follow your heart, live your dreams and do what you love!


Alike is a short animated film directed by Daniel Martinez Lara and co-directed by Rafa Cano Mendez. The short is a very accurate bittersweet look how life can sometimes dull us a little. We follow the lives of Copi and Paste and see how they navigate a busy world.

“In a busy life, Copi is a father who tries to teach the right way to his son, Paste.
But… What is the correct path?”

The short really hits the nail, people do lose their colour over time so the goal should be that you pursue your dreams, do what you love and if you can, try help others achieve their dreams too! And if you can’t pursue your dreams then fill your life with passion.

“There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living” – Nelson Mandela

Alike was voted into the top short films of 2016, coming second after “The Present”, which was about a boy who lost his leg and got a puppy. You can view it here if you missed it be warned though, its a tear jerker, in the most beautiful way!

Alike also received numerous rewards, over 30 awards and nominations world wide! The director Daniel Martinez Lara’s 3D and animation skills are all 100% self-taught, he became an animation teacher and taught for 20 years. His passion for animation is so important that he started a school in Barcelona, known as Pepe School Land.
