I N S T A M E E T x Casa da Música




Na manhã do passado Domingo alguns membros da comunidade de instagramers juntaram-se ao Igers do Porto para mais um meet. Desta vez na famosa Casa da Música, no Porto, obviamente. Deixo-vos com algumas das fotos que tirei no dia - as minhas preferidas. Podem ainda ver as publicações dos restante participantes em #igersdoporto_casadamusica, no Instagram.

Pequeno documentário que pretende retratar a forma como a minha avó, Branca, com demência, está perante a vida: todos os dias são iguais, o tempo parece não passar e a memória só relembra o que a gente não lembra mais.
Esta foi das minhas primeiras experiências em vídeo e a primeira no âmbito documental, sendo o primeiro em trabalho do género com a qual me sinto minimamente confortável em partilhar.


A short documentary film that showcases the way that my grandmother, Branca, spends her days. With dementia, her mind and memory are always playing tricks - everything and every day feels the same and time seems to have stopped.
Only the Past remains.
This was my very first experience related to video documenting and my first video experience that I feel some how confident to share.

B L O O M S x Instagram




Spring is coming, definitely, that means ~happy me~ 
Brought home with me some blooms and played a bit with it and decorated the house. Just can get enough of these pretties little things!

As a long term Instagram user I got really concerned about the last news from Intagram. I really think, and agree with everyone else, that it will kinda ruin the whole INSTAgram experience... what a pity. I'm team #chronologyfirst, just #keepinstagramchronological, please. 
Also, lately I've been getting very upset with Instagram as well due to its compression when uploading a photo - some color channels turn out very messed up - my orange and yellow sub tones, for instance, get all pinkish or red. I'm starting to get really frustrated with this and sometimes I just give up sharing (some) photos. It happened with these photos too...


Wishing you a great weekend! xx

F L O R I S x Ana

35mm film on Nikon f50

So, so sorry for my absence.. Here's a treat of what I had been doing since I last posted.
Recently developed some film from december 2014 when I shot Ana for a project I was working on for my Master, that has then become an ongoing personal project. Head to my flickr page to see the rest of the photos. xx

The Wes Anderson Obsession



Trabalho realizado em conjunto com Ana Romão e a Heloisa Barreira (selecção, compilação, produção, edição), para uma UC do Mestrado. O objectivo da proposta de trabalho era, no âmbito da política de Fair Use, realizar um video usando media de outros autores (imagem e som).
Particularmente, o intuito do trabalho realizado era demonstrar/compilar aspectos e idiossincrasias de Wes Anderson, presentes, variada e maioritariamente, em todos os seus trabalhos.

Project codeveloped with my colleagues Ana Romão and Heloisa Barreira for a Master's assignment (selection, compilation, production, edit).
We were purposed to elaborate a media piece using other people/artists' work (image and sound) based on Fair Use policy. The purpose of our project was to showcase/compile aspects/features present on mostly every work from Wes Anderson.


Espero que gostem! // Hope you enjoy it!
