Koro and Oti in Llamigos

Caminandes is an independently produced series of computer animated short films created by Pablo Vazquez, produced and released by the Blender Foundation.[1][2]


The title "Caminandes" is a portmanteau of the Spanish word "caminar" ("to walk") and Andes, the longest continental mountain range in the world.[1]


The films centers on the llama[a] Koro in Patagonia and his attempts to overcome various obstacles.

Caminandes 1: Llama Drama (2013)

Koro has trouble crossing an apparent desolate road, a problem that an unwitting Armadillo does not share.

Caminandes 2: Gran Dillama (2013)

Koro hunts for food on the other side of a fence and is once again inspired by the Armadillo but this time to a shocking effect.

Caminandes 3: Llamigos (2016)

Koro meets Oti, a pesky magellanic penguin, in an epic battle over tasty red berries during the winter.

The films, inspired by the cartoons of Chuck Jones,[4] are created using FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) such as[1]

  • Blender, a professional free and open-source 3D computer graphics software
  • GIMP, a free and open-source raster graphics editor
  • Krita, a free and open-source raster graphics editor based on Qt 5 and the KDE Frameworks 5
  • Linux, a Unix-like computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open-source software development and distribution

The first film was produced by Pablo Vazquez, Beorn Leonard and Francesco Siddi with a soundtrack by Jan Morgenstern.[1] Hjalti Hjalmarsson, Andy Goralczyk and Sergey Sharybin joined the production team for the second film.[2]


Jan Morgenstern won the 2014 Jerry Goldsmith award for "Best Score for an Animated Short Film" at the International Film Music Festival in Córdoba, Spain, for "Grand Dillama".[5][6]
