COMPARATO'S CURRICULUM





          I. BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Luiz Felipe Loureiro Comparato - known as Doc Comparato - was born in Rio de Janeiro, November 3, 1949. A medical doctor with a specialty in cardiology at 22, Comparato won a fellowship from the British Council at the National Heart Hospital in London in the late 1970s. Returning to Brazil, he left medicine to dedicate himself fulltime to screen, stage and TV work. Since then, he has written over fifteen plays that have been published and produced in Brazil, Latin America and Europe (Spain, Italy, France, England, and Germany, in translation), several novels and children's books and a prizewinning collection of short stories. One of the founders of TV Globo's Creative Center (Centro de Criação) in 1986, Doc's prodigious accomplishments as a creator, author and collaborating author of innumerous series and miniseries since 1978 for Globo, Record and TV networks in Latin America and Europe have won him a number of international prizes. Among the series and miniseries for TV Globo that he has authored or co-authored: A Justiceira (1997/1998); O Tempo E O Vento (1985); and Lampião E Maria Bonita (1982, the first Latin American miniseries and the first Globo TV series).
            A truly international figure, Comparato has lived for extended periods outside of Brazil, engaging in innovative media projects in England, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Cuba, Mexico and Argentina and has traveled often throughout Latin America and Europe working as a professor, script consultant, Creative Adviser, and Script Doctor. In 1987, he worked with Gabriel García Márquez on a miniseries, Me Alquillo Para Soñar/Rent Dreams in Cuba - produced on TV-E, in Madrid in 1990 - and with Russian script writer Alexander Chlepianov in Moscow. From 2002 to 2003 he lived in Barcelona where he worked as a scriptwriter, as well as creative director for Prodigius Audiovisuals (Producer of European TV-movies) and also director of DEA Planeta (De Agostini Planeta Corporation, with headquaters in Barcelona) for the development of miniseries and European audiovisual projects. He was also Consultant for the European Script Foundation - Pilot Project (with headquaters in London). His Spanish/Catalan script credits include Hospital (Tv Antena 3/Madrid /1997) and Arnau  (Miniseries/ Barcelona/1994).
            DOC COMPARATO(R-823008819) has also worked occasionally as an actor, but his thespian talents are most often applied in the courses and seminars he teaches on script writing. His two books on writing screenplays - Roteiro, arte da televisão (1983) and Da Criação Ao Roteiro (1995) - have gone through several editions and languages and remain important pedagogical references today. A frequent lecturer and professor in Latin America and Europe, he continues to give seminars, courses and lectures worldwide. Doc now lives in Rio de Janeiro.

An except from the program publicity, taken from the Spanish newspaper El País, that describes Comparato's contribution to Television in the following manner:

An expert in Television, with the extraordinary capacity to produce and theorize within the most difficult means of mass communication. He distinguished himself by putting into practice modern and original concepts that reverberated in immediate innovations in television culture. Doc Comparato's acute vision has earned him a place as one of the most respected men of Television, enhanced by the advantage of his knowledge of Latin-American spectators that few possess. The workshops, conferences and debates that he provides always leave the participants with a need of making better television the following day. He is one of the most important Latin-American dramatists alive.

Recommend, in Portuguese: In the following interview site - Webwritersbrasil - Doc Comparato offers an informal but incisive overview of his work and ideas.  Interviewed by Axandre Gennari and Felipe Moreno:
