Do not pass Go. Do not collect 200 dollars.

My father took me to the Brazilian embassy this morning. We were trying to register myself as a Brazilian citizen under my fathers Brazilian nationality. I almost became a Brazilian Citizen. But because of my age, I need to submit the necessary paperwork in Brazil in order to receive citizenship. I'll be going in May to submit my papers in person, and get a real taste of Brazilian bureaucracy.




Quidado Sao Paulo! I'm going to make you mine.

Timing Test



Note to self: Timing of animation is too fast at parts. I liked the slow start for the first sequence, though it does needs more inbetweening. The second and third sequence need to be slowed down. Either have a longer break between the cut and the animation, or have the animation on 3's. In order to give the animation more breathing space.

The water droplets should be inverted.
