ABOUT THE PROJECT
In "Chato pra Comer" edition, chef Claude Troisgos challenges extremely picky eaters to experiment the food they hate the most. The job was to create the narrative, telling the participant's story, and to build conflicts to create doubt in the audience's mind: "Will he/she eat the food?", "Will he/she not?". Each editor had to handle over eight hours of footage per episode and choose soundtrack and sound effects, essential to enhance plot twists, and surprises. I participated in the last four episodes of this season.

ABOUT QUE MARRAVILHA!
"Que Marravilha!" first started in 2010 and still has one of the best ratings of GNT. The show had several editions and is hosted by the Celebrity French Chef Claude Troisgros, an important name of international Gastronomy, and his sous chef Batista. Like Batman and Robin, or Laurel and Hardy, the dynamic duo brings slapstick comedy to the kitchen and that made them popular on TV. Claude lives in Brazil since the 80's but still owns a very strong accent, that's why "Que Marravilha!" (How Wonderful!) is a misspelling joke that sounds just the way he speaks. "Chato pra Comer" was exhibited in 2015 with the direction of Ric Ostrower and assistant director Ligia Feliciano.
