BTG Pactual digital

At BTG Pactual Digital, I started as a livestream, video, and podcast producer, handling B2B and B2C marketing campaigns, advertisements, and weekly programs for the bank Youtube Chanel, as well as videos for CNN and Globonews. However, my greatest takeaway was in project management, learning the Agile methodology, using Jira as the main platform, training new hires, as well as creating workflows for internal production processes One of my proudest achievements was being a part of the evolution of the hard news livestream "Morning Call." From its early days of low viewership, I watched it grow into the largest stream in Brazil with approximately 30,000 weekly views organically. I collaborated with the video and content team to create and produce the biggest Graphic Analysis livestream in Brazil, with over 3,000 viewers online simultaneously for eight hours straight, along with a cross-platform strategy that generated numerous contents. Furthermore, I contributed to the planning, execution, and maintenance of equipment in the construction of two of Brazil's largest video studios for the financial niche, overseeing since the electrical and mechanical aspects until the schedule, management and operation of the projects.

Sony Music Entertainment Brasil

During my time at Sony Music Brasil, I worked closely with the strategy team to brainstorm and create content for various platforms, including social media, shows, events, streaming platforms and broadcasts. As part of my role, I traveled across the country, filming major DVD release events for thousands of people, as well as more intimate videos of singers in their home studios. Through these experiences, I honed my skills in shooting in uncontrolled environments and developed agility in delivery, striking a balance between speed and quality.

Video Producer
Dec ‘17 - Sep ‘18

As a video producer at Artplan, throughout 2018, I was able to produce content in real time for the largest private university in the country: Estácio. As well as the production of web content for advertisements for the biggest music event in Latin America: Rock'n Rio. Also I worked with big companies like Petrobrás on their christmas event: Árvore do Rio, at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. On the daily routine I'm always involved in the brainstorming meetings to get ideas and guidelines, video scripting, production of online content on social networks, advertisements on websites and search engines, among other platforms. The greatest achievement was to see up close a strategy being developed by the business inteligence team and by the content strategists, to reach my team's hand as a briefing, to be executed and later be published with a bigger result than expected. It was a job that required so much that, in one of the campaigns, the team needed to edit 86 videos with Chroma + Graphics + Motion + Subtitles in a period of 5 days, with a team of just 5 people. The result of this was that, we achieved a result 38% higher than expected.
