He shoots his scenarios at night, lit by the moon, flashlights and strobes. Because there are only three nights a month where the moon is full enough to provide enough light, he spends the rest of the month planning, pre-visualizing and building relationships with his subjects as he sailsthe Paraná.

It will take from five to ten minutes until this thick darkness sprouts what was secret."
