With his screenplay he won the 1st place at the Curitiba Cultural Foundation screenplay contest. As a prize he recieved USD 6.000 to make a movie based on this script. The short movie is titled "Você É Um Velho Hippie, Senhor?" in Portuguese and was shot November 1st. It is currently in post-production.
