Doritos “Dia De Los Muertos” by Zombie Studio and Final Frontier

Released as part of Doritos’ #PrideAllYear campaign, this animated heartwarmer from director Paulo Garcia at Zombie Studio in São Paulo reveals a family secret that Alberto, a beloved brother and uncle, has taken to the afterlife.

Julieta Zajaczkowski, EP at Final Frontier: “Working with CGI characters is always demanding, but in this particular case, finding a natural and intimate tone for the storytelling was our first objective. We knew we had to be as warm, empathic, and inviting as possible, but avoid it becoming childish.”

Paulo Garcia: “We had to pay close attention to every line in the script, to be sure that not only was the character acting working perfectly, but the lip-sync as well.”

Gustavo Karam, EP at Final Frontier: “We’re particularly drawn to projects with a positive underlying message. So, it’s no surprise that the whole team totally embraced this project from the get-go.

“I’m proud of the movie, not only in terms of craft and because it looks amazing, but also for the message being so clear and heartwarming.”
