Anima Mundi - 3/6

(Read Day 1 and Day 2 of my Anima Mundi experience.)

On my third day in Rio, the morning session was going to be in Portuguese, so after a lie-in, the usual hotel buffet and a quick swim on Copacabana beach, Daniel Greaves and I took a trip up Sugar loaf.

As we'd say in Zambezia, it was amah-zing! Perfect weather, and it was great to spend time chatting to Daniel surrounded by the incredible view. Madi Piller (head of Toronto Animated Image Society) and Alberto Iglesias from Filmax also joined us. Once we'd had our fill of the sights, we then filled our bellies with a massive lunch in an old area near the base of sugar loaf. 

That night Daniel gave his talk and we got to see his Oscar-winning short Manipulation as well as a number of other fantastic clips from his short films and adverts.


Afterwards, we were all taken to a 3-story antique shop by day, buzzing restaurant by night. The obligatory caipirinhas combined with some great live music ended up in a raucous evening that ended up in me breaking my camera. Face, bothered?
