In 2008, Lobo was commissioned to create the opening sequence and interstitials for 'Capitu', a TV mini-series adaptation of 'Dom Casmurro', the masterpiece by 19th Century Brazilian novelist Machado de Assis. The story is narrated by the title character, an ageing man who decides to write his memoirs in an attempt to tie the two ends of life together. But the true purpose of his endeavour is to search for proof justifying his undying obsession: that his childhood sweetheart, Capitu, whom he finally succeeded in marrying, had betrayed him with his best friend, the real father of their only son. Lobo sought to encapsulate these issues in the opening sequence, not just through the choice of imagery but also in a way that involved the animation technique itself. The preliminary research started with the early 20th Century art movement Dada, following a suggestion by the series director Luiz Fernando Carvalho.
