MTV - Confusão 30” from Santa Transmedia Productions on Vimeo.

MTV/Viacom Brazil issued us a challenge: to create a set of super-brazilian IDs with high-impact visuals. The goal was to explore FIFA’s World Cup in an unbiased way, keeping it in line with their target audience.

We chose to embrace reality and created, wrote and produced films about a World Cup that happens not only on TV or in stadiums, but also on the daily life of the ordinary brazilian citizen.

Vivid colors, imperfections and little bit of chaos were the ingredients to build an aesthetic that could synthesize Brazilians’ everyday lives in its most true and universal form, without being too regional or falling into the common places of national culture depictions.

A combination of live-action, rotoscopy, cel animation and motion graphics allowed us to achieve a final look able to give the piece all the fluidity and visual clutterness the narrative demanded.

Hope you like it!

Traveling Lights from we think things on Vimeo.

To be honest – the idea for »Traveling Lights« came to us by accident. We were fooling around with geometric objects while developing a logo design. We liked the idea of combining simple shapes and then creating a completely new context, only by excluding intersecting shape areas. In our case – a circle and a triangle became the snowy top of a mountain in front of the sun. With this picture in mind we started developing a minimalistic world, brought to life by the use of ambient noise and a haunting minimalistic score.

Take a moment and lose yourself in the abstract realism of this world.

Drive-by Shooting: Using Your Car to Make Better Videos from Vimeo Video School on Vimeo.

Great filmmakers should never let a lack of funds get in the way of an epic project. If you’re searching for a piece of equipment to give your film a polished edge, look no further than your garage. A car can supply that extra professional look without costing extra professional dollars.
