Auê* is a series of 27 2-minute long micro-documentaries in which I’ve been working as sound mixing engineer.
The movies show the diversity of children’s plays in several public schools in Curitiba-PR (Brazil). The kids host the episodes themselves, demonstrating and talking about their activities. The screenplays are based on research done by the directors Nélio Spréa (from Parabolé) and Otavio Zucon.
The episodes are being offered at no cost to more than 200 public TV channels in Brazil. This project was approved by ANCINE (Brazilian National Cinema Agency) and it is funded through Fundo Setorial do Audiovisual. The series will debut in February 2017.
* Auê might mean (among other things): fun/agitated activity; uproar/tumult; party.
