About the project
Thomaz de Mello Breyner (Lisbon, September 2, 1866 — Lisbon, October 24, 1933) was a portuguese nobleman. He kept a diary from 1897 to 1933. This animation test illustrates the passage from December 6, 1917 where Mello Breyner describes the difficult situation in Lisbon because of the Great War. "No one slept at home, all night shooting. When the day broke, began the robberies to the stores throughout the city. (...) You can only see poor people passing through with bags and boxes of stolen things in the robbed stores.” — Thomaz de Mello Breyner.
Animation test for the documentary series Thomaz de Mello Breyner Diaries (in production) produced by LX Filmes, based on the book Thomaz de Mello Breyner - Relatos de uma Época, do final da Monarquia ao Estado Novo by Margarida de Magalhães Ramalho.
