Visually creative shooter with and an eye for great characters and developing stories. I evaluate story possibilities on the fly, I script, record actuality, sequences and secure gorgeous GVs.

I speak English, Spanish, French and basic Portuguese, hold an EU member state passport, a clean driving licence and I'm able to travel at short notice .

I'm looking to expand my experience in factual broadcast, specially taking advantage of my languages and academic background (PhD Arts and Humanities).

Fernando is a fantastic director. He has strong storytelling skills, and knows how to direct talent to get the best results. HIs talent carries through into post-production as he knows how to shape engaging stories. A real pleasure to work alongside him.

Michael Vinicio Laver

I have known Fernando since 2012. I worked with him at university and in independent projects. I consider him as a very talented professional with a very wide experience. His creative ideas, out of the box thinking, and unique solutions have been a tremendous contribution to our group. I also read his outstanding PhD thesis in which he examines creativity in the documentary film mode. I would strongly recommend him.

Behnoosh Amandi

I've know and worked with Fernando on and off for the last 30 years. He has a sharp creative mind and is a brilliant problem solver. Over the last few years he has been concentrating on making documentaries, whilst at the same time earning a PhD. If you view his docs you can see his creative mind at work. I have no problem recommending to anyone who is on the look out for an innovative film maker/director/ DP.
