Fernando Sapelli


Born and raised in Brazil, Fernando Sapelli moved to California in 2004 to pursue a degree in Film and Media Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. After graduating in 2008, he moved to Los Angeles to establish a career in the film/media industry. Upon acquiring significant work experience at different prestigious companies and productions, including Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way and Sony Pictures Television, he decided to follow his true passion and employ his knowledge to the benefit of others. People of Change is his first solo project and the core mission regards the creation of short documentaries for selected non-profit organizations, which ultimately strive for the betterment of their community through positive changes. Although the pressure of traveling alone can be challenging at times, the rewards and public response thus far have made the project entirely worthwhile.
