Projections Art Director and Visual Creator of the Olympics Rio 2016 Closing Ceremony. My role was to create the visuals that covered the Maracanã Stadium during the event broadcasted to 17 million viewers worldwide. I also co-art directed with partner Batman Zavareze a team of 11 animators to produce the 2-hour video projection content. The project, which was the event’s main scenography, was elaborated in close collaboration with Rosa Magalhães, the Creative Director of the Closing Ceremony, together with Patrice Bouqueniaux, Technical Director of the Projections for the Olympic Ceremonies, Bryn Waters, the Choreographer of the Closing Ceremony.
