Em memória do Olímpio Ferreira.

Nas palavras do Rui Tavares no blogue Barnabé: “Olímpio Ferreira: velho amigo, brilhantíssimo paginador do livro do Barnabé, tipógrafo, fonógrafo, daltónico. Também é pai – ora toma. É o gajo mais culto do Barnabé, razão pela qual diz que não sabe se vai escrever. Será o nosso director artístico.”
(e escrito também ontem pelo Rui: “sem dizer adeus“)

vlog #000 de 2008

(english: this post is in memory of a good friend of mine, Olímpio Ferreira. these vlog entry is the first one from 2008 but i changed the post date to show up on my front page.)


Hi! here we have another very late video for NaVloPoMo.

My knowledge on footbal is almost none, but I will try to be accurate.
Sporting is a footbal club in Portugal. And in the year 2000 it won the Portuguese National Cup, that victory was preceded by many years of trying to win it.
And so the party was amazing, and this pictures were taken in Lisbon on that night.

Enjoy this first and very rough cut of my moving pictures.

Fátima 2000

For this NaVloPoMo experiment that we are doing, I really want to learn how to do the editing and get good pace and story telling. At the same time I intend to review some of my miniDV and HDV archive and explore that as a way to try new things with these old material. Most of these tapes were solely recorded and never played…

I went and fetched one and a “half” tapes of a visit I did to Fátima Sanctuary in Portugal, I have to say that I am not catholic and so I went to see what was the scene. It was on May 13th of 2000 and on those particular days the Pope John Paul II visited the place and told the third secret of Fátima.

I want to do some movies about this trip, but today is to late and so I leave you with just this, I recorded this minutes after getting there for the first time.

Jerónimo de Sousa desce o Chiado

Portuguese Presidential Elections in January 2006

What we see here is the Communist and Green Party Alliance (CDU) candidate, Jerónimo de Sousa, doing campaign on Chiado street, that is in downtown Lisbon.

This is my second video from that Presidential Election, the first one was about Mário Soares, the Socialist Party (PS) candidate – (my sole and unique video for videoblogging-week-2007).

It is like 5 mins long and tries to show you how the typical street political campaign works in Portugal.

Presidenciais Portuguesas de Janeiro de 2006

O que vemos aqui é o candidato da aliança do Partido Comunista e dos Verdes (CDU), Jerónimo de Sousa, a fazer a sua campanha na descida do Chiado, na baixa de Lisboa.

Este é o meu segundo vídeo sobre as eleições presidenciais de 2006, o primeiro era sobre o Mário Soares, o candidato do Partido Socialista (PS) – (foi a minha única entrada na videoblogging-week-2007).

Este pequeno filme tem cerca de 5 minutos de duração e tenta mostrar como acontece a campanha política de rua em Portugal.
