Assim é se lhe Parece

Series of animated pieces (and a few outtakes) I created, along with my brother Vitor Cervi, for the documentary ‘Assim é se lhe parece’, directed by Carla Gallo. The film goes around the life and works of brazilian post-modernist artist Nelson Leirner. We received some quotes that would mark moments of the cut, and had a lot of freedom to conceive the images. The layouts were based mainly on vintage propaganda and Pop Art, but we also had this idea, fundamented by my feelings concerning Leirner’s work, that there should be no visual identity connecting the animations, just a misplaced sense of popular and common stuff.
