JORGE FERRAZ

 

print Lobster Films

Cartoonist, animator, director and, for a brief period, silent movie comic, Bowers created some of the most imaginative, idiosyncratic, and surreal short comedies of the 1920s.

 

His French screen moniker, "Bricolo", is an inspired shorthand for a filmmaker who applied the art of bricolage to slapstick surrealism, cobbling together animated wonders from gears and gizmos, household objects and junkyard bric-a-brac, creating funny Frankenstein marriages of the biological and mechanical.

JORGE FERRAZ

Jorge Ferraz is a musician-guitarist (although he works with a lot of electronic and digital equipment, the guitar and electronic guitar are his great obsession), composer and producer.

 

He founded and led some Portuguese underground bands since 1983, with emphasis to João Peste & o Acidoxibordel, Santa Maria, Ezra Pound e a Loucura or Fatimah X, Gasolina em Teu Ventre! (whose first album was considered in 1998 one of the best albums in Portuguese popular music from 1960 to 1997).

 

In 2006 he started working under his own name, having published two albums since then. In 2014, in the commemorative issue of the 30th anniversary of Blitz magazine, he was considered one of the best 30 Portuguese guitarists of the last 30 years.
