Family, love, violence, death. The ludicrousness of a western upbringing in a nutshell.

    A Man Called Man

    This is my classical graduation film from Vancouver Film School’s Classical Animation program, based on Rafael Sperling’s original text from the book “Festa na Usina Nuclear” (“Party at the Nuclear Power Plant”). All the drawings were done on animation paper with a 2B pencil (or many 2B pencils, to be more precise), and the textures were done using my own blood.
