Hadley TK-421

a narrative film in English

The Hadley TK-421 is here to revolutionize the work place. A black comedy set in 1960s London, it’s the kind of short you don’t see often. More than just a punchline, and with a particular sensibility on a very low budget, you’ll wonder where you can get your hands on a Hadley once you’ve seen one in action.

Rio 2016 Olympics: 'I will win a medal on behalf of all refugees'

Refugees who are highly qualified athletes will be eligible to compete in the Olympics for the first time.
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
In the 2016 Games, a select group with no home country to represent will be welcomed under the Olympic flag. The International Olympic Committee is in the process of identifying potential contenders, and many refugees around the world have intensified their training. In Rio de Janeiro, the 2016 Games host city, two Congolese judoka meet the criteria. While facing many struggles, Popole Misenga and Yolande Mabika keep alive their hopes of being selected.

Malaria

a narrative film in Portuguese

MALARIA tells the story of Fabiano, a young Mercenary who is hired to kill Death.
This short film combines Origami, Kirigami, Time lapse, nankin illustration, Comic Books and Western Cinema.
My first intention was to submit this project to Django Unchained Emerging Artist contest. However due to time and crew limitations I submitted the short film "The Writer" to this competition. (You can watch "The Writer" here https://vimeo.com/46235261)
6 months later we finally finished Malaria. We hope you enjoy it!
