Vasco Sá was born in Porto in 1979. With rooted ancestry in the northern mountainous region of Portugal, he spent his first eighteen years of life at Trás-os-Montes (Behind-the-Mountains), before he moved to Porto, where he graduated in Sound and Image by the School of Arts (UCP). It is in this context that he meets David Doutel, with whom he has shared several projects in the universe of Animation Filmmaking, namely the direction of the short-films O Sapateiro/The Shoemaker (2011, PT/ES) and Fuligem/Soot (2014, PT) - both recognized and rewarded nationally and internationally - and Agouro/Augur (2018, PT/FR), their most recent work. In addition to this journey in the scope of film direction, he has integrated the team of multiple cinematographic projects of different authors, both in the artistic and production aspects. Since 2011 he has been collaborating with the production company Bando à Parte, as director and animation production director, together with David Doutel. He likes to see the mountains in front of him.
