Original music composing for the animation short Amélia & Duarte.

In this story we are guided through the relationship of Amélia and Duarte, two people that felt out of love and are trying to cope with the feelings that come after a relationship has ended.
Their relationship has the shape of an archive box and their contents illustrate the story about their breakup. We are guided through their separation as they try to divide, destroy and erase the memories of each other.
The film is made in pixilation and stop-motion and has a Technicolor feel of the 50s, portraying not only the surrealism of their actions, but also providing an ironic chromatic impression about the end of love.
