REQUEIJÃO VIGOR (2014)
I directed this series of short spots for Vigor – a dairy products company – back in 2014 while working at Santa Transmedia. It featured some popular Brazilian foods cheering over getting topped with requeijão (some sort of Brazilian cream cheese).
The agency already had the overall idea locked down when they approached us, so the goal here was to execute it with excellence over the aspects I did had control – like visuals and acting – within the limited budget and timeframe we had.
It was a great opportunity to finally work with some CGI artists I admired from a distance, like Vitorugo and Wesley Schneider and overcome our team size limitations by using the top talent we had in-house at the time, with Eric Pautz handling the Art Direction, Rafael Z. Chies doing all of the shading and lighting work and Maurício de Oliveira in charge of compositing and grading.
