“Tamo Junto” Short Film by Pedro Conti and Flooul Animation
Director Pedro Conti and his design and animation crew at Flooul Animation in São Paulo, Brazil, just released their new passion project, a short film full of heart and atmosphere called Tamo Junto (Together).
Pedro Conti: “The idea of the film was to spread something positive and a hopeful message in this chaos we are living in with the pandemic. Especially here in Brazil, there are so many conflicts happening on the political side that are breaking the country in two.
“The goal was to find this subtle feeling that can connect all of us. We all are afraid of losing someone we love. We all have sweet memories from old times when life was simpler and we lived happier.
“The goal was to find this subtle feeling that can connect all of us.”
“The big challenge was to keep the project moving while we were all working full time on commercial projects. Also, Brazil was hit really hard with the pandemic, so mental health was another big challenge.
“The production took around 15 months in total but for nine months it was on hold until we all digested current events and recovered from all the disasters that were happening.
“Marcio Nicolosi was the animation supervisor on the production and was taking care of the shots and giving feedback for the animators. I was in the front of story, design, and CG – in collaboration with Gustavo Ramos our lead modeler.
“We also had the help from Fydell Botti who is a live-action DOP. The amazing soundtrack and sound design work were done by Loud+ and we had Brazilian rapper Criolo as the voice of our main character Dinho, and Brazilian actress Luciana Silveira as Done Edi.”
