The Alien Experience

“Táticas Para Convencer Uma Garota De Que Voce Veio De Outro Planeta”

…is probably one of the longest movie titles I have ever heard of, yet it is the name of a short movie. The 10min and 44seconds pass rapidly – still they tell a whole story that at its best fascinates you but at least keeps your attention to it until the end. “Táticas” as we want to call it simply, has become a very nice piece of curitiban cinematography produced by my highly respected friends from the Asteroide Films Studio. I am very thankful for being able to work with them on this movie and I wish them all the best for their future productions!
