Antonio Freitas

Producer / Prod. Manager

Not only the name behind FND but also the literal face of our logo. From being a tourism driver on the island to a pivotal figure in production, Antonio's journey is nothing short of remarkable. After a chance encounter with production, he made the move to Lisbon, honing his skills through training at Garage Prod Company. From there, Antonio's freelance career soared, ultimately leading him to the role of a seasoned production manager.


Armed with an intimate knowledge of the islands, Antonio envisioned and brought to life the first-ever service production company in the archipelago. Today, at FND, we take pride in ensuring our clients' satisfaction, thanks to Antonio's passion and expertise.

Flavio Nuno Joaquim

Scout

Meet Flávio Joaquim, not just our exceptional scout, but also a master of art photography. What began as a passion quickly transformed into a lifelong love affair with his camera. As a dedicated photography teacher on the island, Flávio's expertise shines through in every frame.


His journey was an organic ascent, from capturing moments to becoming one of the finest scouts in the country. With an eye for detail and an innate understanding of the landscape, Flávio has become one of the three key pillars of this project. His artistry and scouting acumen are integral to our success.
