As with many great, lasting creative partnerships, the genesis of Spanish studio Dvein was forged whilst its members were still learning their craft. When university students Fernando Dominguez and Teo Guillem met, they were exploring the possibilities of Photoshop, pushing for more than the software could offer. "We began with 2D, then we started using programs like Flash to make our graphics move," says Dominguez. "We left for Germany to study tools like After Effects - tools that were really incredible. They let us make whatever we wanted." Their experimentations resulted in a showreel that earned them a job with design and communication studio Vasava.

Their animated shorts also piqued the interest of an old friend, Carlos Pardo, then working for the Spanish multi-medium festival OFFF. "I'd met them in Valencia when the three of us were in college," recalls Pardo, "but I tracked them down when they were in Barcelona".
