Paco Roca, Comic Book Author, Co-Scriptwriter and Designer
“I didn’t really make anything up. The real anecdotes are so good they couldn’t be improved.
Emilio (the lead role) is the father of a good friend of mine... I also met a lady who spent all
day sitting at a window, convinced she was on a train. To get her to eat something, she had
to be told she was in the dining car.” - Paco Roca
Paco Roca began his career at El Vibora magazine, where he created his first published work, Road
Cartoons, in collaboration with J.M. Aguilera. In 2001, he made his first solo publication debut with El
Juego Lúgubre, inspired by the surrealist painter Salvador Dali, and with it made his first foray into
the international graphic novels scene. Since then, he has created numerous works - Hijos de la
Alambra; El Faro (awarded Best Script Winner by the Diario de Avisos of Tenerife); Wrinkles (winner of
the National Comic Award and the Gran Guinigi Award, among others); Las Calles de Arena,
published in Spain and France; and most recently, El Invierno del Dibujante, a story about the
extraordinary generation of comic artists in 1950s Spain.
Ignacio Ferreras, Director and Co-scriptwriter.
“I recall a conversation with a friend, an animation film director. He said, ‘You spend five or
six years working on a film, and then you watch it and think: I’ve wasted five years of my life
on this.’ I’d be happy making at least one really good film -- that would make it worthwhile. I
am confident that Wrinkles will be that worthwhile film.” - Ignacio Ferreras
An animator and director, Ignacio Ferreras is perhaps best known for his animation work on Sylvain
Chomet’s Oscar nominee The Illusionist, directing and animating the 1000c SMS Finals segment in
Tokyo Olympics 2008 and his production work on Asterix and the Vikings. When he is not making films,
he lectures at the prestigious Animation Workshop in Denmark, the National Film School of Denmark
and at Volda University College in Norway.
In 2002, he directed and animated Channel 4’s acclaimed short film, How to Cope With Death, for
which he was awarded the Jean-Luc Xiberras Prize for Best Short Film at Annecy, as well as 22 other
