He was also the author of several videos about Underdogs Gallery’s projects and artists, such as Ernest Zacharevic, AkaCorleone, Sainer, ±MaisMenos±, Finok, Pedro Matos and so on. Between 2015 and 2016, André worked with the creative unit Solid Dogma, signing videoclips, and commercial and institucional movies for television and other entities.
