Fernando Serzedelo




I started working on movie production in Brazil in the early 90’s as a director of sport documentaries and afterwards as a producer and assistant director for feature films and international advertising commercials.

Over the years I have specialized in international films, co-producing advertising and fiction feature films with filmmakers like: Ruy Guerra, Justin Lee, Roland Emericch, Louis Terrier, Spike Lee, Spike Jonze, Jack Scott, Zack Snyder, Tony Kay, Tarsen Singh, Marcus Nispel, among others.
I have also produced some video clips for Michael Jackson, U2, Simply Red etc.

In recent years I have dedicated myself exclusively to fiction and documentaries.
I have directed and produced documentaries, filming in several different countries as Japan, China, USA, Portugal and Brazil.
I was born in Portugal in 1962, moved to Brazil in 1976 and in 2018 I returned to Portugal.

Below there is a summary of the main projects, in which I have participated.
