My name is Bruno, and I'm Portuguese but currently I'm based in Hong Kong.
I've been writing screenplays since 2012 and so far I have 10 short films written that were produced in different countries - 6 in the USA and 4 in India.
My short films have been awarded and nominated in several festivals around the world:
"The Robbery" - Was one of the 3 short films nominated for best screenplay of the competition Shortcutz Lisbon 2013 (Portugal). Nominated for best secondary actress at the Asians On Film Festival 2013 (U.S.A.).
"Guardianship" - Won the award for best actor at the 2016 Indie Horror Film Festival
"Thomas Hawk" - Won the award for best short film Indian category at the Pink City International Short Film Festival 2015 (India). Was also a semi-finalist at the International Open Film Festival 2016 (India)
I've a finished feature screenplay that I'm currently trying to option/sell:
