Rio 2 is coming up soon! (April 11th) I worked as a story artist on the first movie a few years ago. I’m excited to see what’s in store for the sequel!

One of the sequences I worked on included a gang of little marmosets monkeys hired by the Antagonist (Nigel) to get back Blu, our hero. I was tasked to have them fight using Capoeira, a form of Brazilian martial art that combines dance, acrobatics and music. It was a ton of fun. It eventually made its way into the movie in a different context.

I’ll post some more sequences in the next few days.

Go Rio 2! And congratulations to all my friends that worked on it!
