Vasco De Oliveira

Vasco De Oliveira


Recent London Film School graduate, Vasco de Oliveira thrived on filming. You could always find him in other student's projects, either as a head of department or an assistant, what mattered was putting the skills to use. As a student, he relinquished the opportunity to work on as many film sets as possible.His goal in the LFS was to learn a bit more from each department, allowing him to further his vision as a director and to develop his cooperation with each creative department while understanding more of each's technical side and skills.The cooperation between LFS and Royal College of Music allowed him to work with composer Joe Kiely - from early term films until the graduation film - which would become a musical. Original score and lyrics made it the first musical in the 60 years of London Film School's existance.Now that he graduated, the portuguese filmmaker believes that a director should be able to adapt his skills to each genre and film, according to what it entails. ​​Raw emotion, working with actors and using film as an insight into the ever changing landscape of society’s views is what interest him more as a filmmaker.
