About Vasco

I've always wanted to be an astronaut, a fashion designer, a monster truck driver, a crane operator and a furry little hobgoblin. I've never really been any of those things, but thanks to the magic of smoke and mirrors, we can make believe I am.

I run a pre-production services company. We schedule, budget, plan and otherwise get movies ready for production, or ready for investors to see.

Before you connect with me, consider this. What do you want to do with that connection? Try calling me directly instead.

Unique traits: Every time I type, someone looks over my shoulder. Okay, almost every time. We all think we're unique, and we all are in a way. It took me a long time to develop the ability to blend in and become invisible. The stories I tell are of characters with traits that are at once unique to them and yet that an audience can relate to. I can make those traits which are invisible, visible. But, my favourite ability is to see the talent and develop talent in others.


  • Dara Says

    Dara Says (2014)
    Film by Ptara Ltd (Comedy) "Jack", Writer, Director, pre-production When Molly invites her favourite life coach, she takes over. I recently saw "You Me And Dupree" which seems to be loosely inspired by the same theme, but our film is more realistic, has more weighted toward the female roles, and is way lower budget.
