For school (VFS), we had to make a Title Sequence and I decided to make the movie of my life (so far we just have the title sequence :P) and its everything in boxes and circles... It took me a lot of work... there is thousands of key frames made in after effects...
The internet has established itself as a repository of knowledge. The lion’s share of the world’s knowledge, experience and information resides on server farms and can be accessed by anyone at any time.
The work focuses on the shift of knowledge onto the internet and a question that arises from that shift: What will we still want to know when all information is permanently available?
The product is a two-minute trailer for an animated series on this theme of the transfer of knowledge. I am responsible for the script, the general form, the coordination of everyone involved and the project realisation.
Through an emotional grandfather/grandson relationship, the trailer illustrates how the transfer of knowledge has changed in the last three generations. At the same time, it deals with the difference between analogue and digital knowledge.
A metaphorical short film about bikes, movement, freedom and love. Every day mind tries to get the better of heart. Space and time have always existed and we can’t stop them. Throught the movement we discover ourself. Speed is like curiosity. A crash between two bodies. To remember us that we are not alone.
The video has been realised between Montréal and London. It combines 2d and 3d motion graphics and video footages.
Main tools: Adobe AI, PS, AE; Apple FCP; Maxon C4D; Sony Ex1-Cam.

Repositories of stories and its enriching emotions, the covers, that accomodate the existing panoply of musical genres, are the motto for this exibition. The focus is made on album covers that often conquer our memory even when music slightly reached our ears. Major graphic disasters or deified, unduly ignored or zeitgeists, covers provide listening with a touch and an image, with the act of collection and share. From cover to cover, going thru all the stories (and histories), we wrote a new one to the sound of a song that repeats: I need nothing, I’ve everything I need.
‘I need nothing’ is an original concept from Cãoceito + Burdman, shot by Moopie. Its premier happens as a tangential project of EXD’11.
‘Useless’ - the motto of biennial’s current edition - was the kick-off, and the thought on how album covers (vinyls, in this case) enable people to ‘listen with the eyes’ the main goal of the project. At a time where digital audio files dominate but where traditional mediums still seduce fans, the album covers, being useless for some, stay relevant for others.
In this odyssey we benefited from the help of a set of people which, directly or not, live by the rhythm of the music they buy, download, share or create. The Parenthetical Girls lent music (Doughnut) to the video; Moopie shot the video; Matéria Prima yielded the venue in Lisbon; designers/illustrators/artists - Ariana Couvinha, Carla Almeida, Daniel Marques, Diogo Carvalho, Júlio Dolbeth, Hugo Oliveira, Manuel F. Sousa, Mariana Fernandes, Miguel Feraso Cabral, Miguel Vale, Nuno Aguiar, Paulo Lourenço, Paulo Serra, Pedro Naves, Rodrigo Burdman, Rui Vitorino Santos e Samir Mesquita - provided the bulk of over 200 covers, which populate the video and embody the central element of the project, and yet all others who enriched the discussion with surprising texts.
