Big men with golden watch and noisy cars
Uses their right hand to point out
who has more
Turning their back, claiming
they know more than anyone
But, they have no knowledge
in respect to the great people
That sincerely places their right hand
above their heart
Kindly serving, gently speaking and genuinely smiling
Big golden noisy men know nothing
They keep looking at the figure
not understanding what really matters
- Because the heart is something it can’t be seen with the eyes.

O grande povo (brazilian version)
Grandes homens com relógios de ouro e carros barulhentos
Usam sua mão direita para apontar
quem tem mais
Viram suas costas alegando que
eles sabem mais do que qualquer um
Mas eles não tem conhecimento nenhum
a respeito das grandes pessoas
Que sinceramente colocam sua mão direita
sob o seu coração
Bondosamente servindo, gentilmente falando e genuinamente sorrindo
Grandes dourados homens barulhentos não sabem de nada
Eles continuam fitando a figura
não entendendo o que realmente importa
- Porque o coração é algo que não pode ser visto com os olhos.

Progress is a video piece made by four international artists, Andrew Sawyer (UK), Lara Jacoski (BR), Marina Velez (ES) and Samir Chadli (MA), that hopes to draw attention to the changes inherent to both cultural and environmental development. Working with discarded construction material and found pieces of traditional Moroccan tiles, the artists want to address issues related to what is gained and what is lost through economic development and how developing countries can face the challenges of growth and changes of identity. This is synthesised in the work through a choice of colours, pace, sound and themes. In this collaborative piece, produced during Terre Sans Frontiere Casablanca 2012 event, the artists tried to approach the change of traditional environment and aspects of Arabic culture with a fresh eye. It is their hope that this video will contribute to the understanding of the transitory and fragile nature of progress.
Progress (Progresso) é um vídeo feito for quatro artistas internacionais Andrew Sawyer (UK), Lara Jacoski (BR), Marina Velez (ES) e Samir Chadli (MA) que procura dar atenção para as mudanças inerentes ao desenvolvimento cultural e ambiental. Trabalhando com material de construção descartados e azulejos tradicionais marroquinos, ambos achados nas ruas de Casablanca, os artistas querem abordar questões relacionadas entre o que se ganha e o que se perde por meio do desenvolvimento econômico, também como países em desenvolvimento possam enfrentar os desafios do crescimento e mudança de identidade. Esta é sínteze do trabalho de escolha de cores, ritmo, som e temas. Nesse projeto colaborativo, produzido durante a residência e evento “And’Art” de Terre San Frontiere em Casablanca, os artistas tentaram abordar sobre a mudança do ambiente tradicional e aspectos da cultura árabe (especialmente na cidade de Casablanca) com um olhar fresco, novo. A esperança é que este video contribua com o entendimento da natureza transitória e frágil do progresso em si.
I’m going to be away for a couple of months. My next project involves some travelling and I’m going to update a blog instead. I’m travelling Morocco for a month with my talented friends, Chico Han (musician/biologist) and Patrick Belem (musician/filmmaker) and together we’re “The Vagamundos”.
We’re meeting people and filming everything we see. The final project will be a film of our trip but until there we’re updating our blog with our tales and photographs here. You can also check our facebook page!
Apart from this project we were selected to be part of an art residency in Casablanca/Morocco called “And’Art Casablanca” by Terre Sans Frontière. At the residency we’re going to meet many other artists and musicians from all over the world and altogether, create a new collaborative project.
See you soon and don’t forget to check the updates of the blog here :)

Showreel 2012 out!
This edition of my reel brings the best projects I did over the years, the latest projects of 2011 and the beginning of 2012.
A selection of shorts, promotional, music videos, corporative, experimental and events which I worked, in most of the projects, as director/scriptwriter, editor and coordinator.
I’m happy to look back and see a range of projects that has my personality, my way of approaching a subject and my own style… But yeah, I’m up for bigger challenges and there’s still plenty to come for this year. I’m also interested to be part of conceptual projects, documentaries, music videos, promotional/corporative videos, besides collaborative projects with different artists of different areas.
Enjoy it and hope to hear from you soon :)
