I was invited by directors Daniel Hanai and Bruno Carneiro to create some animations for their short documentary "A Valsa Do Pódio" ("The Podium Waltz"). The movie tells the story of Terezinha Guilhermina, a visually impaired brazilian runner who, with the help of her guide Guilherme Santana, won two gold medals in the London 2012 Paralympics, and since then is the world record holder in the 100 meters sprint.

This scene shows one of the most dramatic moments in the whole Paralympics, the 400 meters T12 final, where Guilherme was injured and fell down, after which Terezinha decided to stop.

The animation is a mixture between watercolor textures, frame by frame animation on both paper and digital, and compositing.

Year: 2013. Please watch the other animations I created for the movie here: vimeo.com/danielbruson/valsaabertura and the making of here: vimeo.com/danielbruson/valsamakingof
