Producer Black Pen Films
A Brazilian audiovisual production company that develops high quality projects with the objective of building new imaginaries through images and sounds. The black pen is symbolic for the brand. A pen that traces, builds, and signs freely. A symbol of wealth and power. Thinking of the autonomy to tell stories in a positive way and avoid the reproduction of stereotypes that have existed for years in the audiovisual media, partners Jonathan Haagensen, Mariana Veil , Luciano Vidigal, and Roberta Rodrigues joined forces to take over the narrative and guarantee a constant and attentive look at the deepest questions of human beings, which go beyond skin color. Through the creation of new projects, co-productions with relevant themes, and the formation and training of talent, Black Pen aims to directly impact the market with solar projects that show infinite possibilities of existence for all people in society.
