Jogo de Dentro

This animated short tells the story of a couple playing a game of Capoeira Angola in the park. It is an ancient martial art of African origin, one of the many cultural weapons used to break the chains of enslavement in Brazil.

The technique of rotoscoping (tracing video frame by frame) is used to give the movements an extra dimension, it took about 1200 sketches to make the animation. Make sure you like drawing before you start working on a project like this.

Animation: Sir
Dancers: Totti Angola and Ilma van de Beek
Music: Grupo de Capoeira Angola Pelourinho, Mestre Moraes
