Can you point to anything that may define the Brazilian gaming industry?
What sets it apart from the rest of Latin America, and the world? Brazil has incredibly talented and creative artists. It’s hard to keep them working in Brazil when a large part goes to work abroad.
What impact have the TV, Film and Video Game industries had on each other in Brazil? How closely are these industries related?
They are very united, now more than ever. Animation series are demanding games, and so on. The more points of contact between the brand and characters and it’s audience, the better.
Have you directly experienced the convergence of the gaming and animation industries in your work?
We have a show on DISNEY XD, named KARL, and we have just released the game KARL RACING for all mobile apps.
How do you rate the Brazilian gaming industry today, and how do you see its prospects for the future?
I would rate it pretty well, but still needing to grow in terms of investments to produce huge massive games such as Blizzard.
