¡Olá Mundo!

Hello World!

In short, I’m a Brazilian filmmaker studying at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. The past year has been very generous to me. I don’t mean in the monetary sense or social-familial sense (although I had an amazing time with the love of my life and met some amazing people), but I’m mostly talking about experience. I have learned more than I can fully grasp right now, but I can definitely feel some of the results already taking place. I realize that the more I learn, the more I my ignorance surfaces and I get depressed, but I get better and life goes on. With that said, I’ve come to the conclusion that one of my greatest flaws is my writing and this is why you are bored right now as you read my lame late-night whines of something you don’t care about and begin to realize that you don’t even know why you’re still reading it. I guess is time I get to the point.

I was just locked for editor on an awesome thesis film for next semester called: “MICROECONOMICS” and the director (Aneesh Chaganty) inspired me immediately. He challenged himself to watch a movie a day for an year and write about each one in an effort to make him a better filmmaker. I envied him and that same second I decided to take upon a similar challenge:

  1. -I will do at least 3 movies/week
  2. -write about each one
  3. -catch up on the ones that I somehow miss

and it shall be called: The Aesthetics of Hunger. No. The Hunger of Aesthetics.

This is just the start. My goal is to get to 1/day. Wish me luck. My challenge starts today.
