I am a creative, dedicated, experienced self shooter and director working as PD for independent productions. I specialise in documentary style and I’m at my best doing observed. I speak English, Spanish and French. I work comfortably with members of the public or highbrow contributors and have lots of experience interviewing. I am as outgoing as hard working yet discreet, thorough in my research as doctors are. I solve problems, get things done, can shoot on my own with a main cam, Sony F, Canon C or BlackMagic Design and GoPros for support. As part of a team I'm happy doing first or support camera, I Edit, shoot with editorial in mind and work with every main program.
I have a very good eye, a reel (you can see at https://vimeo.com/508952520 ), very extensive experience on independent productions, a website that tells more about me (https://fsobron.com ) and a Vimeo account showing a couple dozen video productions of late (https://vimeo.com/fernand ).
I also have a background in Advertising Creativity and a few of the main international advertising awards like Cannes Lion, Epica, Eurobest, One Show or D&AD, which should help backing my claims to creative thinking and doing.
I have a PhD which should go a long way to portray the way I do things: diligently, properly and to the end.
Last, I have a horizontal timeline CV, where I mixed graphic with traditional CV information, I encourage you to take a look. Read Less

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.
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.
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.
