About

Hi, I´m Frederico Miranda (also known as Fred2Friend)
and I’ve been infinitely passionate about the visual arts and storytelling since I was a child. By the age of 15, I started taking an audiovisual techniques course, and during my final year, I directed my very first short motion picture. Dedicated to consistently honing my artistic skills, I then attended Centre d'Estudis Cinematogràfics de Catalunya (CECC) in Barcelona, Spain and obtained a Degree in Film Directing. Before I knew it, I became a film Director specializing in the advertising market. Independently, I developed original documentaries, short films, and music videos. To date, I have directed 90+ commercials for numerous big-name brands like Coca Cola, United Nations, 33 Export Beer, and Tourism of Portugal. I have also worked with renowned agencies like BBDO, JWT, Y&R, FCB, and many more.
Today, I work as a Freelance Film Director and have spent an half decade managing Todos Creative Hub, which I also founded.
I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, and while I’m also based in Portugal, I now travel across the globe. Most recently, I have been researching the backstory of an esteemed Japanese novelist and poet who mysteriously decided to reside in a remote village of Portugal for two years in the 1970s.
Now im based in Lisbon developing my own projects and also im a resident film director at moremaria production company.
