My fellow country man Carlos Saldanha has created and is directing this beautiful new project from Blue Sky called Rio. It is looking great and I loved the way they are portraying Rio de Janeiro.
I am intrigued by this film and much more so because the story happens in Brazil.
A couple of years ago I flew to Blue Sky and interviewed with Carlos. He is such a nice guy and it was great to meet him.
They offered me to work on the film as a storyboard artist but I decided on working at another studio. I met most of the story crew and I thought they were a great bunch. I loved them and they made me feel so welcomed. They are so talented and you can see that in their recent movies.
To be honest, I kind of regret a little for not accepting the job there at the time. I would have loved to be a part of this beautiful film and it would be fun to work with the story team.
Congratulations to you Carlos, for showing our beautiful Brazil in a high profile animated movie and to all the talented crew involved in it.
Sorry but I am not able to get the whole full size video embed.
