About the Movie

“The music video tells the story of an office worker who is struggling to attract the girl of his dreams, a coworker. The question posed is this. Are his colleagues and his daily office tasks the obstacle in fulfilling his dream or rather, the dream itself?”

About the Project

“Coco de Elevador” is a music video for a Brazilian DJ, Chico Correa. It’s part of the “Cria Cultura” initiative to help both brazilian musicians and animators spread their work.

Director Paulo Passaro wanted to tell a story about everyday life with Chico Correa’s music as it’s dynamic soundtrack. People tend to think that their everyday lives are boring and their dreams are always better. That’s why the music video is divided into three parts, each with a particular animation technique. The first one is “real life”, which is made using traditional 2D animation. The other two are “the dream life” which are made using two other types of animation, 2D animation in After Effects (CG) and Stop-Motion Animation. The purpose for using different animation techniques was not only to make the video more interesting but also to contrast our dreams to our everyday lives.

Ha ha ha! This is so fun! I've always liked the idea of combining traditional-ish 2d animation with 3d, whether it's CGI or Stop-Motion, and you pulled it off really well. I really enjoyed the use of loops and repetition in certain parts, it made it feel very much like a game, which fits. Awesome.
