In the name of science

Greetings.

So, back at the studio we just finished up this piece here. It's a medical film about the wonders of our immune system. Seem boring, right? Well, the good thing is the client gave us a lot of freedom to make all the "actors" (blood cells, viruses and whatnot) way more cartoony and expressive than what you'd expect from these types of films. So, it turned out to be a very fun job to do.

Designs are mine and the animation was split between me and the mighty Rafael Gallardo. The animation direction was done by the head honchos Paulo Muppet and Lu Eguti. The whole thing was done in Flash.





Oh, the text is all in Portuguese. It mostly explains what's going on inside our awesome bodies. Cheers.

Dumpin'

A little new year cleaning on the sketch dump. Some like it rough.

An animated thank you to the Frederator community

I couldn't believe it when I got the news a while ago, but my short "A Pug's Life" won Frederator's first Quarterly Prize for Cartoon Quality. This means I got a brand spanking new 21-inch Cintiq tablet from these generous and cartoon-lving folks.

So, I can't thank enough both Channel Frederator and all the community for making this happen and voting for my silly little film. I'm still giggling like a little girl scout. And since I can't bake cookies to everyone (or even know how to), I put together a small "thank you" animation to everyone.

Special thanks to Carrie and everyone at Fred that went through the kafkian nightmare of shipping a gigantic Cintiq tablet to São Paulo. You guys rock.

Oh, and happy new year to the lot of you.
