PACO has a strong passion for character based work, comedic performance, and finding the right visual language to support the development for each of his characters. He integrates a diverse range of disciplines into his work, including stop motion, animation, CGI, and 3D.

Before graduating from the University of Porto, in Portugal, he directed the short Film Without a Story, which won a Grand Prix at the European Capital of Culture Festival, and was screened at the Cannes International Film Festival.

During the last few years he has worked around the globe with recognized brands such as Vodafone, Honda, McDonald’s, Procter & Gamble, and Unilever — as well as creative agencies like Young & Rubican, McCann, TBWA, JWT, Publicis, BBDO, Havas, and Ogilvy. His films have collected silver and bronze at the Cannes Lions Festival and Gold at the Epica Awards.
