This is our latest work.

There´s a children story here in Brazil called Sitio do Pica-pau Amarelo, which is about the daily adventures of fantasy characters in a enchanted farm. The story has been created by Monteiro Lobato ( , one of Brazil's most influential writers.
TV Globo (, where the show is aired, gave us the extraordinary opportunity to do make this sequence for the Show.

Here´s the result.

The Doll animation is absolutely awesome! Just Brilliant!
I love that part when she is dazy.

I like her hair too.

From Seagulls fly, this is my favorite right now.

My favorite from you guys.

Absolutely terrible, offensive and vile. I'm giving you 1 star to put you in your place, and I would not watch it again.

....just kidding Ricardo! You know I loved it man!!! All of the animations were great (especially the girl with the long brown'd you do that hair???)....the company that gets this as the intro to their tv show is friggin lucky!

Hey guys! A lot of comments already!

Well, it was a loooooot of fun to work on this video!! Reading your comments is almost as cool as doing it! :)

Ivanisavich, or T (easier to spell), I´m glad you liked! The hair has been done using Soft bodies, Cloth and reactor...



Just kidding! It has been done manually, using standard bones system. :)

Wonderful, fantastic!
Realmente ver materiais deste nível me deixa muito feliz e orgulhoso por ser brasileiro e fazer parte desta geração de novos artistas digitais. Parabéns!
obs.: Quando será que esse país vai finalmente estruturar uma industria cinematográfica para que possamos desenvolver todo o nosso potencial artístico e ajudar também a impulsionar o crescimento econômico do país?

Sure reality has much less glamour as we would like to know, and i'm just assuming this cute and naif video has nothing to do with the fairly high numbers of infant abuse in Brazil.

Or you just want to show a sexy "cloth doll" in sexy clothes hoping no one ever would think about this subtle detail just because you live in a country where it's ok to have sex with underage people? Better people then you are getting rotten in Guantanamo for much less.

Your video is despicably dirty, although extreme animation skill and overall art direction were shown. Loved that first transition from book to "live". Colors are also very pleasurable and modeling is as good as usual. Eager to see more from you.

Dirty, dirty video nonetheless.

Wow! Lots of comments here! Thank you for everything!

SuperXCM: What is happening?!

Vitor Vilela: Good to hear from you again!

Holzmeister: Hey man. Come on... Stop saying that! Besides, the flipping book opening sequence of this same show, that your team did some little time ago was amazing! You should post it here! :)

Borges: Goos question, dude?! (Next time try to write in english since this is an international forum... :)

ZNP: Man, you are such a character! I think that this time you will get banned (again)... :D For the moderators, don´t listen to him! ZNP is a close friend of ours and this is his way of saying that he loved the piece. With this talent, he should be at a play or something... ZNP = Sarcasm :applause:

Hey Cadinho, thank you but unfotunately, as employees, we are not allowed to post the works we have done for TV Globo, but anyways you could see some of them in my personal portfolio, you will not find that one because i only did the lighting and was a preety fast task, so i decided to not include it there...

ZNP - This kind of discussion could be resolved in just one place, and you know where! Next time we meet CODfest!

04 April 2007, 04:43 PM
Awesome work guys as usual!! I am still trying to find something you guys do that i don't like :) keep up the great work
