THE OWL is a video sketch for Cidade dos Bichos [City of Animals], a research about sensibilities awareness, education and media design. To study how to approach a multidisciplinary workflow design, the production assembled a diversified range of handcraft arts, objects, textures, animation techniques and digital visual effects. For THE OWL, We started mixing puppeteering, woodwork, visual effects and media archeology.
Everything including the character research, the sketch content, screenwriting, scene direction and content editing was co-created in collaborations with Maíra Martinez. From notebook scratches to rendered video took about 6 months.
