On food safety, working in partnership with Germano Heitor Mombach, beyond directing, I decided to take the whole illustration work by myself and ended up having a really good time doing it.
This one had a very minimal production, with all the character animation being done by Guma Nutinski while I took care of the design, background animation and compositing.

Throughout 2018 I had the joy of producing 3 more pieces in the Tetra Pak Services series.
Again I returned as both director and illustrator, teaming up one more time with Germano Heitor Mombach (the series' creator) and bringing them to life with no one else but my longtime partner Ricardo Drehmer, who also shares the direction credits with me in the last piece.
For these 3 we tried to overcome low budget by unfolding the story in smaller spaces and simpler camera setups – which required less design and animation work – and then making up for it with tighter storytelling and the regular dose of funny stuff.
