Meet Humberto Rosa of Red Line Filmes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Humberto Rosa.

From the time he saw Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, he knew he had to become a filmmaker, and now he would love to collaborate someday with Steven Spielberg.

Currently working in Los Angeles, he now has six titles in development, and an astounding twenty-six completed film and video titles working with some of the biggest talents in the industry both in Brazil and the US!

Humberto Rosa is the executive producer and producer of a new major Brazilian comedy feature film entitled Solteira Quase Surtando that will be released this March 12 at major theaters throughout Brazil.

He also has The Method (formerly The Assistant) in development, the story of an ambitious Hollywood assistant who finds herself in a hellish, life-or-death situation when she agrees to live in isolation with an overbearing Method actor who wants an extreme experience far from civilization while preparing for his next role. Humberto is the director and executive producer, with well-known talent attached like Nicky Whelan, Costas Mandylor, and Christopher Showerman.
