From then Chico taught himself about film, especially after his father gifted him with a camera. From that point on, Chico shot amateur films in super 8mm and 16mm. However, his professional introduction to film began with him being a photographer’s assistant. It wasn’t until he migrated to Sao Paulo, where he became a camera assistant and gained experience in the film world.
