Company Directors Tatu Pictures Raquel and Craig


Hello and Welcome to Tatu Pictures

Thanks for swinging by.

We are a cosmopolitan independent Video Production Company, based in a beautiful part of the world called Wales, more precisely in Cardiff.

Tatu Pictures Ltd was forged by these two lovely individuals from opposite corners of the world, a Brazilian lady and a Welshman.  They discovered rather quickly that not only did they share a passion for each other, but a passion for filmmaking too.  This soon to be married couple, Craig Morris and Raquel Toniolo, have epic back stories that you can explore.

What does ‘Tatu’ mean?Three Banded Armadillo - Tatu

Tatu is Brazilian for Armadillo, hence the lovely picture of an Armadillo designed by Craig.  He designed it as a tattoo for Raquel, after she had a life changing dream (you will have to ask her what the dream was).  In a quirk of serendipitous proportions, the Tatu (aka armadillo) has significant symbolism in Brazil; it means creativity, trust and curiosity.  What better, than to use this as the foundation to their business.
