Trained Fleas

This is a 3D animation that I’ve done for my degree.

The story is about a simple Brazilian Northeastern salesman who tries to sell his trained fleas. I had to make researches about northeastern people way of speaking, their culture and their way of acting to create a funny and trustworthy story.

This short film was one of the most complex and fun works I’ve ever done. The writing, storyboard, animatic, modeling, rig, animation and dubbing was made by me.
