Tim Maia: “Racional Vol.3”

In 2008, late Tim Maia’s mythical 1976 lost recordings of what would have become the third outing on his much celebrated “Racional” series, resurfaced. Three years later, the sessions were finished with original band members led by producers Kassin and Paulinho Guitarra. Commissioned for the album release, this documentary short, which I produced, directed and filmed, remains unreleased due to legal dispute between the record company and Tim Maia’s heirs.

Chico Buarque: “Desconstrução”

It had been 8 years since Chico Buarque, a true Brazilian  music icon, had stepped into a studio to record “Carioca”, his first on an independent label. And he  had never allowed his creative process to be filmed.  More than a making of an album, “Desconstrução” is an intimate portrait of an artist, stripped down as if unaware of the presence of the camera. Released as a DVD/CD combo by Biscoito Fino records, the documentary had such impact that it became the main topic on the press reviews.

“Dub Echoes”

Filmed in Kingston (Jamaica), London (UK), NY, Washington, LA (US), Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo (Brazil), “Dub Echoes” is a documentary that traces the origins of the Jamaican dub music and it’s influence on the development of hip hop and electronic music.

I produced, directed, filmes and co-edited the film that shows how the Jamaican invention called dub ended up influencing much of the music we hear today, from electronic music to hip-hop, transforming the studio in a musical instrument and giving way to all of sonic experiments.

After touring festivals around the world, it was released on DVD through cult label Soul Jazz Records.




Praya beer is getting bigger and bigger. They asked me to develop a training video to help educate its growing sales force on the company’s values, with a motivational and aspirational appeal. The solution I found was to tell the story through the eyes of their first and most successful seller, letting Frank tell the team how he got there and how working for Praya has positively impacted his life. There was also and accompanying corporate video with Praya’s history.
