- Make-Up Department
Born and raised on January of 1977, Aragão started shooting his films in Guarapari, a small town located in Espirito Santo, Brazil. His father was a magician as well as a cinema owner, he was created around the world of tricks and makeup.The snap of that could be his future came early. When he was seven he watched a documentary film about "The Empire strikes back". Everything he liked was there: movies and special effects, even though he hadn't had a glance about what that meant. It was the eighties, when "Evil Dead" was released, a cult classic film that ended up (un) doing his mind. Then he passed a period doing courses and workshops that made him think he was ready to make his own movies. He began in 1994, working as special make-up artist for the short film "The Legend of Proitner", followed by "Vampicide" (1996), another short film, nowadays obscure. His debut as a director happened in the theater, with the horror play "Mausoleum", playing from 2000-2003. Later on, he directed his own projects, with "Chupa Cabras", "Rotten Fish" and "Rotten Fish II", all short movies, and "Mud Zombies" (2008).
