Thiago / Luís Cavalheiro / Pereira


Thiago and Luís met while studying Cinema at University of Beira Interior. In high school, Luís studied Arts, and had always shown an interest in exploring its several forms, like Sculpting, Animation and Photography, which led him to study film. Thiago studied Sciences but ultimately couldn't imagine himself working in anything but movies. At University they each specialized in Editing and Photography, and as their final project, they chose to direct and write their first short-film together - Alexandria, which later premiered at the Portuguese Academy of Cinema's Student Awards.
