Since July, I have had the honor to work with a very talented crew at Clay Animation studio in Valencia, Spain.

We are 16 animators working hard (120 frames/day) with animating the 2nd Season of Clay Kids TV series!

The best part of working here is that every day is a surprise.

It can be action scenes, jumping, running, skateboarding, walking like a cat and... sleeping!

Here is the first episode released from the second season:

This beautiful piece of  #stopmotion film is my latest job as a senior animator.

Created for Global Commission on Drugs Policy, the animation has a powerful message about the criminalization of drug use.

I am really proud and honored to be a part of the crew who created DRUGO! 

Thanks for VetorZero!

Making of and full credits here:

I remember when I was having a conversation with Paulo Muppet (Birdo) and he told me about Caveirão. Paulo is a great storyteller, like all directors should be, and he is an awesome director! 

Anyway, after listening to the story about this film, I immediately invited myself to work on this short and after a few months I got a call from Birdo.

Unfortunately my favorite animation (of all I made) is not on the short (for obvious reasons).
I didn't have time to finish it, but I want to share it here so you guys can enjoy it too.

I hope I will have time to finish it soon!

The short film Caveirão you can watch here:

A almofada de penas.

Have you ever heard about the stop motion short "A Almofada de Penas"? You may not yet, but you definitely will!

"After two years of struggle and effort we can take a deep breath and say: We have the money to make our movie!!!" says Joseph Specker Nys, director of the ambitious project that was selected among more than 15.000 projects to be sponsored by Itaú Bank.

More than 2 years ago, Joseph went to Animaking  and the "Minhocas" studio, looking for help to build the structures of his puppets. Since then, I have been following his steps in the process and I also helped him to make the teaser for the project, which you can see below:

After this test, I was invited to work as animation director on the project. Now I can't wait to animate these puppets!
