Nuno Rocha is interested in becoming a director, and he completed a degree in Porto last year from the Polytechnic of Porto (ESMAE).    The work was done inexpensively with the support of friends and inexperienced actors, but you wouldn’t know it from watching this charming film.  You can see a trailer here, and the full film should be available publicly soon. We hope Nuno will visit Austin for the upcoming SXSW interactive and film festival in March.
