Born in the Azores Islands and having studied Fine Arts, at the University of Lisbon, Rui S. Vieira is currently living between Amsterdam and Lisbon. He is a film director and photographer with a background in creative direction, infusing each project with a unique blend of creativity and vision. Rui's directing work is diverse, embracing narratives, vignettes, humour, and CGI. Despite this diversity, a consistent theme emerges: a strong emphasis on visual storytelling, meticulous casting, and a dedication to realism. Furthermore, he is a partner at Playground, a production company based in Lisbon, where his role extends far beyond film directing and encompasses creative direction for special projects. This dual role reflects his multifaceted expertise and commitment to push creative boundaries.

Rui is presently writing his first feature film.
