Music video clip for Kevin o Chris & MC Kekel
I had the pleasure to direct my very first full animation music video clip! And what better way to do it than for a new song featuring two of the biggest funkeiros from Brazil: Kevin o Chris and MC Kekel.
Showing the simple but happy favela lifestyle, a mysterious figure drops coins to the community residents with an invite to the big party happening that night, the famous Baile Funk.
For this project I wanted true stories, that's why I teamed up with the creative collective Manda Busca, a group of amazing artists born in the favela itself, bringing beliefness to our story.
You can also watch the original with 4+ million views.
This project was featured on Behance's curated collection of Motion Graphics.
