Fausto Becatti is obsessed with the way an image can evoke a certain mood or emotion. His commercial films are diverse, but each carries a distinctive stylistic stamp, and a step beyond performance and comedy there is something ambient and lingering in the impact of his craftsmanship. His style is cinematic and he is known for coaxing great performances out of actors individually or in groups, and for pairing striking visuals with energising soundtracks.
He has created commercials for the Standard Bank, Tiger, Nandos, DSTV, Nissan, and Diesel Clothing. Music videos for Spoek Mathambo, Shadowclub, and Alice Phoebe Lou.
Notable awards include a D&AD Pencil for collaboration on a City Lodge Hotel Group campaign.
