@04:07:) é o que muitos disseram, eu concordo. É a primeira dublagem que fizemos, sem ensaio e em 15 minutos. Ainda penso em refazer isso e postar uma versão nova.

This is the result of a project in Audiovisual media for the bachelor’s degree in Communication with enphasis in Editorial Production at Anhembi Morumbi University in São Paulo, Brazil (2011).



‘Espelho D’Água’ ( in English: Water Mirror) is a short movie based on the poem ‘A Meditação sobre o Tietê’ by Mário de Andrade, a renowed figure that engaged the Modernism moviment in brazilian literature. This poem was written only 13 days before his heart suddenly stopped beating, but only posthumously published in ‘Lira Paulistana’ (1945).


A criterious analysis of the poem was made in order to allow us to identify the concepts behind the poet’s words and were essential to translate words into an audiovisual product. The elements we based ourselves on were: water, mirror (and also all the thoughts, metaphors and comparisons with the poet himself to Tietê’s river), night (hopelessness, soul and darkness) and the conflict of the poem’s main chacarcter.



Mário de Andrade loved São Paulo city very passionately, but also hated it in the end, mainly because of the course that politics was taking. These feelings were evoked to the short movie’s main character called Prestes, a systems analyst, who after an unexpected announcement, starts to think deeply about his choices, mistakes, all his ommissions and eventually the course that his life has taken.



The base scenes were recorded with a Nokia N95 cellphone. The techinique used was digital rotoscoping, in which frames were worked in Adobe Photoshop before being reunited in Adobe After Effects for the final scene with effects and color corrections.

@04:24I do like the style that you've done here. And the story of it is rather close to me as a writer. It does seem atrocious how artists whether visual or otherwise are so looked down upon. Almost as if we're supposed to become machines and obedient worker bees in this hive.
Reply
:iconcrisvector:
CrisVector Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012
yeah that's the point...

People are being prevented from thinking.
Reply
:iconstardragon77:
StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012
And yet it seems like we artists, writers and philosophers are the ones who are doing the thinking. That's probably why we're not thought of in mainstream society because people have become so lazy that thinking seems like too much work. Don't you think so?
Reply
:iconcrisvector:
CrisVector Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012
yeah, well, generations are educated to not think, this is an irony. The usual education is to keep people under control, to learn to say yes for what the "society" says it's righ. Some people have luck to find people, professors, parents or even friends that help and give guidance for thinking.

And sure, there's the lazyness :)

Yup, I remember once I got into an argument with my photography instructor in front of my class about how academia seems to stunt a persons creativity. How we're essentially forced into this cookie-cutter form of creativity in order to pass a class and make the grade. And as a result the professor chastised me in front of the other students. So it pretty much is a metaphor for real life in the corporate world where one has to be an obedient worker otherwise they're made an example of.

CrisVector Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
yeah that's very true. My wife is having the same problem in her thesis. The instructors don't allow you to think much, they just want to control what you can write... Well, the reasons are many but what I feel is this way makes their work easier.

:iconstardragon77:
StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
Yeah. I ran into a similar problem when I was writing a novel as part of a project class.

And I found it to be so contradictory how I was being shoved into this meat grinder and yet they keep showing us these books where writers don't follow those rules.

An example of this is Cormac McCarthy who has no sense of punctuation whatsoever and yet the literary world thinks he's a genius. But I'll tell you this much if anyone in a classroom tried to do the same stuff he does the paper would come back with so many red marks that you'd think that the page was bleeding.

@04:24Chris, a fantastic intro to the new year, which I will wish you the very best!

This is great and a great translation on how many "simple man people" feel. It is also reflecting the dishonesty and "subtle" discrimination, which is more damaging than shouting your skin full. Where the manager makes it more flowering about "best performances" and "code of integrity" to keep you numb and plain simple. In my experience it is all about how good you cross over and how you can be interesting. Craftsmanship is secondary or even tertiary. Amen to this eye-opener!

Hi! Thank you, a great 2012 for you too :)

Yeah that's the point. It's about being unnecessary and discarded but, also, it's about people that forget to follow their wishes and end in a labyrinth without return. :)

Shelfcloud Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
True, I could read that as well, but also, secundary, if not tertiary, it is about getting the fair option/chance to make that realize. I mean, I fight for all I'm worth, but it got me to pretty much nowhere. I'm taking chances whenever the option is available, but just to some there won't be any. Simple as that.
