FLAVOUR PRODUCTIONS
  • EDUARDO
    DE SOUSA
    Cinematographer
    Eduardo is the leading creative force behind Flavour Productions, who oversees and manages all projects and gives the company it's strategic direction and vision.

    Born in 1974 inside the cosmopolitan influences of Lisbon, Eduardo soon felt the lure of motion pictures, and began to drink from the hot cup of cinematography in the early 90`s, when digital production still involved a hand built box balanced on a knife edge which needed a steady hand and a focused mind to master.

    His strengths are having a strong vision of how a shot or piece should be, and then using his years of experience in lighting, as a DoP, or as a post-production supervisor to pull all those threads together and deliver the perfect blend.

    MÁRIO
    RUI LINO
    Creative
    A one man band, Mário Lino has a degree in communication science, but has trained in areas as diverse as music, 3d modeling and animation and video editing, which gives him a multi-talented ability far above average.

    Passionate about cinema and visual effects he is an unconditional fan of "The Sopranos", "Grey`s Anatomy", "The Simpsons" and the animations of Aardvark Studios.

    He started his professional career in RTP, where he won the first prize awarded by the European commission for investigative journalism for the programme "Bombordo".

    At present he is chief editor of "Business Connect" magazine (MZ) and a contributor to the “Expresso” newspaper (PT).

    TITO
    DA COSTA
    Film Director
    A native of Lisbon, Tito da Costa was born in 1970. In 2002 he enrolled in a Direction of Cinema course at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles.

    At Universal Studios, his first work of fiction did not pass unnoticed and he received support from the academy and from Panavision to complete two more short films during the course and was the only student chosen to film with Adam Bidle.

    In California he established a special relationship with Digital Film Tree, and was invited to work as technical consultant on the book "Final Cut Pro Advanced Color Correction and SFX", published by Pitchpit.

    Tito is thought to be the first Portuguese to produce a film in Hollywood - "Road to Red" - co-written with Larry Leahy.

    RUI SUSTELO
    SANTOS
    3D Modeling and Animation
    In the early 90s he embraced the newborn subject of 3d animation, and it's with Lightwave 3D running on his Commodore Amiga that he begins his long journey through this new form of artistic expression, both exciting and full of promise.

    In 1995 he was invited by the director Norbero Nunes to work at Nova Imagem and swapped his degree studies for the wisdom of the mythical Virgilio Ferreira, with whom he learnt animation in Softimage 3D.

    He worked at Nova Imagem for 5 years, which gave him the privilege of producing an enormous quantity and variety of digital effects, and at the same time sharing knowledge with a collective of talented and hard-working creative virtuosos.

    In 2002 he started actively collaborating with Flavour and in 2009 he created his own company, where on a daily basis he does what he likes best, creating and animating in 3D.

    COLIN
    J. SMITH
    Specialist Consultant
    Graduating as a civil engineer took him into technical design, with the early world of 3D CAD leading on to a range of other 3D modeling, rendering and animation packages.

    A long standing interest in photography and video led him to join Flavour Produtions as a founding member in 2000, where he had the opportunity to further the depth and breadth of his knowledge in the boiling cauldron of the workload of a production house.

    Moving base back to Scotland in 2003 Colin`s interests moved to developing specialized time-lapse photography techniques and matte painting using 2D and 3D methods, as well as taking a role in project development and management, and film conception and story-boarding.
