Tell stories that need to be told. That's what drives me to make films, whether it's writing a script, directing or assisting the director.
Cinema came into my life in 2014, after dedicating 12 years of my career to the corporate world, where I worked for companies like Natura, HP and Eagle’s Flight.
In 2014 I took a script course in SP and in February 2015, I resigned and went to New York, where I stayed there for 1 year and a half studying script and throwing myself into the world of cinema. There I had the opportunity to do production assistance for the production company Smuggler and in some independent films.
Back in Brazil, I write scripts and direct commercials, documentaries and fiction. “Ana”, my first short film, written and directed by me, independently and with no money, went through 20 festivals around the world and won 12 awards.
Ah, I forgot to tell you, but I am also trained as a storyteller for children, improviser and clown, where I worked in hospitals as a volunteer. Come in, make yourself comfortable and don't mind the mess. Manu Berlanga
