This was one of the very firsts films I did. It’s a short film that tells a story of a magic cell phone that helps people to connect which each other during the holidays made for Vivo, a phone carrier in Brazil.

The whole movie team had just a few more than half a dozen of people and we worked on it for about three months. I got in it at first as a modelers and was responsible for modeling all the characters. We decided to use the same base mesh for all of them which helped the process to be a little faster and I was able to model all fifteen characters in two weeks. After the modeling I also animated a couple of scenes, helped with the modeling of the props and backgrounds and worked assembling some of the scenes in the end of the movie.

I used ZBrush for the modeling and Maya for animating the shots.
