Heavies tendres

Tender Metalheads | Animation Series | TV3, 2018

🎬  Tender Metalheads is an animated series that aims to reflect the transition from childhood to adolescence during the 90s in the pre-Olympic Barcelona, a period little exploited in fiction so far.

The story focuses on Juanjo and Miquel, two teenagers who find in their friendship and in metal rock music a refuge from the dull world in which they live in while facing their first relationships and life decisions. The characters are part of an imaginary world in which each one represents a symbolic role. Thus, they include, among others, Miquel (Freedom), Clara (Thought and Reason), Masa, (Fantasy), the father (Protection), the mother (Love) and the grandmother (Knowledge).

The creator, Juanjo Sáez, has invested six years to complete a first season that includes eight 20-minute long episodes.
