DEL REGINATO HEADS TO BLACK DOG FILMS.
15 May 2022

Brazilian Fernando 'Del' Reginato has joined Black Dog Films for UK representation. The well-travelled director first made his mark in New York City, where he shot promos for friends at the renowned CBGB nightclub. Once he'd soaked up the atmosphere of the old stomping ground of Blondie, Television, and the Ramones, Reginato looked to broaden his horizons.

This led him to direct '35', a short film about the life expectancy of trans people in Brazil. The work earned Reginato a Vimeo Staff Pick and sundry other accolades, as well as the attention of Black Dog chieftain Martin Roker.



"Del is another exciting addition to the Black Dog roster," Roker says. "His background in post-production and experience directing using different mediums uniquely position him to work across a variety of briefs. He's an accomplished filmmaker and we want to help him add to that."


I've barely arrived and I already feel like part of the family.

 ”

Reginato is pleased to have connected with a company he's always admired: "Black Dog has always been a creative reference for me for being a company that has never moulded itself into market trends, quite the opposite: it is a house that helps to define standards and direction by working with artists from different views and backgrounds and giving them all the necessary support."



The Brazilian adds: "I've barely arrived and I already feel like part of the family. I can't wait for what the future holds for us!" Expect Black Dog to make a big deal when Reginato's UK debut is ready.
