The Territory of Play

I was invited by Maria Farinha Filmes to make the opening credits sequence for the documentary The Territory of Play, directed by David Reeks and Renata Meirelles. The film is a part of a more extensive project created by the two, with the intention of covering and documenting different ways children play all along Brazil, as well as the importance playing has on our developments as humans.

The briefing was clear that the visuals should not to be childish and should not create a distinction between the adult and the infant universe. Based on kids using dirt and hand drawing, a recurrent element shown in the images, I came up with the strokes that sometimes work around the scenery and other times have their own ways and suggestions, being more attached to playfulness than to establishing a rule for the symbols.
What you see here is a mix of my original ideas and what ended up being used in the final cut of the film.
