Brazilian film director Daniel Ferreira (Ferreristico) began his career founding a small production studio while in advertising college - producing first experimental shorts and low budget films.
Later on, he worked closely with big studios, from cable guy to assistant director, understanding the film set rules and started building his portfolio, developing an artistic approach.
In 2012 he was invited by Fabrica
( Benetton’s Research Center ) to be part of its creative team in Italy. There, he improved his skills working side by side with the world’s most creative young talents, from different cultural backgrounds. He also developed his debut animated film ( Los Rosales, 2014 ) awarded Jury Prize in Palm Springs and 1st place Young Director Award in Cannes (2015).
The YDA Cannes news, got him invited to work with a great production company in São Paulo in 2016.
That same year he was awarded by Tim Burton in hands as 1st place video contest held by MIS.
He established himself as commercial film director and got to direct projects for world brands.
As the creative process glows his eyes in the search for meaning, he challenges himself on a multitask level, ranging from film, illustration, photography, sculpture, animation - wherever medium fits the project better, in order to convey a great result that will touch hearts and defy minds.
In 2019 he directed his first music video to one of the big rock bands of brazil, Capital Inicial.
Right after, he directed a music video for the british genius Alexander Wolfe - a live action footage mixed with a hundred drawings made with ink.
He is always looking to collaborate with talented people and learn everyday.
Currently living in Brazil, willing to live abroad, and develop a 3D retrofuturist sci-fi film based on Metal Hurlant vibe.
