Samara - Animations in documentary

Director Sheila Avellaneda asked me to add a layer of animation in a “childish drawing style” on top of her surrealistic documentary about the little Samara who lives in the favela of Bauru in São Paulo, Brazil. Although Samara was growing up in very poor living conditions with an uncertain future she had a really positive happy vibe with her wherever she went. To illustrate this positive vibe I added hand drawn animations on top of live action footage of her. It was nice to be able to bring this documentary to another level, although it was quite some tedious work drawing everything in photoshop.
