Fernando Serzedelo



I started working in movies in Brazil in the early 90’s as a Director of sport documentaries and then as a producer and assistant director for feature films and international advertising commercials.

Over the years I have specialized in international co-productions, 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 also produced some music videos for Michael Jackson, U2, Simply Red, etc.

In recent years I have dedicated myself exclusively to fiction and documentaries, directing and/or producing 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 2017 I returned to Portugal.

Below is a summary of the main projects.
