Joao born in the sunny Lisbon, Portugal.

After studying art in Lisbon, he started working in advertising as a designer, his father and mother were art directors for multinational agencies. A few years later started his own company and did a few years of art director and brand design. Few years after Joao found in love with motion picture, and studied cinema and script writing in London, and cinematography in Los Angeles. Joao started his film career as music video director and after a few years he jumped in advertising.

For the last years he is been shooting a long list of commercials for most of the main world’s leading agencies and major brands, for multiple countries in Europe, Africa, Middle East, South America and Asia, winning multiple awards for his skills as director, editor and director of photography.

Joao is a modern director, he is part of a new generation of directors that have a global view and great skills on the entire filmmaking process.

“I believe directing is becoming more and more about managing all the aspects of the filmmaking, it’s great when you understand all the departments and their difficulties, process and team work becomes much easier and enjoyable”.

Joao is known for his easy going and relaxed directing style, yet top notch professional. One of the top aspects of his film making, is always to bring a truthness side to the pictures. A truly emotional storyteller.

“What I really love about filmmaking, is how I can shape visuals to play with audience emotions. Every film has is own language and plasticity, I love to discover and find what best fits the script, that’s what I like about directing, not following a line”.

I’m in love for: Visual Storytelling, Emotional Stories, Real Emotions, Manifestos, Crazy ideas and Crazy people, Anything with Music too.

Joao lives in Lisbon with his family
