About Nuno

Growing up between Portugal and Spain and having learned four different languages, I began my academic studies in Lisbon but soon left to Denmark where I graduated at the European Film College. Upon graduation I directed my first independent projects and worked as both a cinematographer and a video editor on four feature-length films in California. Soon after, I founded Skookum Films with two former colleagues and made various projects which have since been shown in around 200 film festivals from across the globe being awarded on several occasions.
For short periods, I have lived and worked in different countries such as Switzerland and Brazil, and I've collaborated with clients and partners from more than 30 countries from all over the world.
I have also been a jury member at different film festivals and a public speaker at various events throughout countries like the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Brazil, Switzerland, Portugal, Denmark, the USA and the Czech Republic.
Keeping my firm belief that in both art and the world there should be no boundaries, I became an e-Resident of Estonia and upgraded our company to an e-Business following the example of innovative companies such as Skype, TransferWise and Taxify.

  • Mother Vine

    Mother Vine (2011)
    Film (Documentary and History) Editor Traveling throughout Portugal, including the islands of the Azores, we've documented select historical wine regions under multiple threats. From the building of second homes, to European Union mandates; from financial hardship, to the unwillingness of a younger generation to follow, Portugal is very close to losing forever important elements of its wine culture and history. Mother Vine is an effort to introduce to European and American audiences just what is at stake as Portugal encounters modernization. Through humor and pathos, Mother Vine follows the practices and dignified labor of winemakers in regions entirely unknown to all but the most traveled. Can hundreds of years of wine culture be saved? Mother Vine ultimately says 'yes'. Written by Anonymous
