A publicist from Varginha – Minas Gerais, worked as an art director in some of the most important advertising agencies in Brazil such as DM9DDB and Wunderman for global brands like Microsoft, Intel, and Chevrolet. In 2013, his passion for storytelling, design, and illustration spoke louder and he decided to open Dirty Work, a film production company.
In 2016, he started to work as a Duo with Gustavo and was immediately able to put into practice the combination of their singular taste for things in every opportunity. They are driven by a collaborative and horizontal way of work that aims at the contribution of all the people involved in the production, besides, of course, the endless seek of the most original possible way to tell a good story.
Passionate about illustration, photography, cinema, and animation, Leal and Faga is always looking for new experiments and techniques to evolve in each project they direct. Their distinctive formations and self-taught spirits enable the Duo to dive into different languages and techniques of the animation world. 2D, Traditional, 3D, Stop-motion, and Live Action with animation.
As a result, today they own an authentic language, which has been gaining more and more space in the national and international market ahead of Dirty Work’s creative direction.
