THE OTA SEX REPORT
DOCUMENTARY FICTION AND ANIMATION FEATURE FILM
The project "Ota Sex Report" will mix animation and real image to address the issue of human sexual behavior. The documentary will be the transposition for cinema of the book "O Ota do Sexo" published in 2010 by Otacílio d'Asuncion Barros, the well-known Ota cartoonist of the Brazilian version of Mad magazine.
The documentary will have an aesthetic proposal that will refer to comics. Images from the original book will be animated, illustrating the topics. The interviews will occupy most of the documentary, and will use a visual language that will blend various types of animation, such as rotoscoping, clip animation, 2D animation, etc.
It is seen in the language of comics and documentary an innovative line to approach openly in a natural way, irreverent, revealing and impertinent, sex. The intention is to create in this feature film a synergy between the art of cartoons and the cinematic language of documentary through humorous tone, with agile and fun rhythm. Themes from the cartoons present in the book and on archival materials will serve as the guiding thread for the actual testimonies, with the aim of showing that when it comes to SEX reality may be surreal...or not. This is also intended to create a certain discomfort in the audience that will attend, instigating questions that "these testimonies" are truly real...and will be.
