Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Richard first came to Los Angeles to study cinema at UCLA in the late 90's. An editor by craft, he made his foray into feature films with the animated documentary Pablo, the anticipated film on seminal graphic artist, Pablo Ferro.
Narrated by Jeff Bridges and featuring a number of brilliant filmmakers and creative collaborators the film tells the story of the artist responsible for the look and feel of much of Stanley Kubrick’s and Hal Ashby’s work, and one of the men who first made film title sequences “a thing.”
Richard's debut film went on to premiere Rotterdam and became the opening Gala at the Los Angeles Latino Film Festival in 2013 and opened to great reviews. Pablo was featured in dozens of cinema and design publications all over the world and sold in several territories.
