Dossiê Rê Bordosa






This short-movie, directed by César Cabral and produced by Coala Filmes, is a documentary made in stop motion that investigates the reasons that took brazilian comic artist Angeli to murder his most famous creation, the junkie character Rê Bordosa, in the late 80´s. All people interviewed were transformed in stop motion characters, based on a stylistic research of Angeli´s drawings and characters.


I collaborated with all the Art Direction and Concept Art, and the poster for the film. Also directed the post-production and the tabletop animations together with my friends Ian Sampaio, Francisco Beraldo, Danilo Enoki and Carlo Médici. Above is a montage of some scenes and below are some frames from the movie.

Below are the concept arts for the characters and scenarios. Basically we tried to bring Angeli´s line and style to the tridimensional world of the characters and scenarios as much as possible. The goal was to use these environments as a way to differentiate the testimonies and help adding more personality to the characters.
