Nogueira's Fire Food

The film produced for Nogueira's Fire Food presents the story and origins of what would become this restaurant, located in one of the main avenues of the city of Lisbon. Innovative in its concept and sophisticated in decoration, it holds a common element between all of the dishes: the confection through fire, either grilled or baked on a wood oven.
This project results in an animation that's differentiating in its approach, created with original hand-drawn illustrations, and also several other visual arts such as the cutting and collage of certain elements.
