Welcome to NERD! Meet Fausto Becatti, award winning director and photographer who 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 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 an inclusive range of individuals or groups, and for pairing striking visuals with energising soundtracks.
As a strong devoted diversity advocate, Fausto embodies individuals of all backgrounds and skin colours from both the mainstream and the under-represented, which casts a unique dynamic to his body of work.
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.
