BIO

Luís Rosa Lopes has a background in art, having finished his 5-year academic degree in Sound & Image, at the UCP's School of Arts, in Porto, Portugal in 2006.
He specialised in Sound Design for Film having produced several sound tracks for short films and sound art compositions.

Within those years he founded one of Porto's primordial VJ collectives, named Leitmotif and experimented the visual arts  through this channel and Video Art.
Later this evolved into the Ikix project, born in 2011, together with Marta Dias, bringing VJ and Filmmaking into one by capturing realtime fluid lab experiences.

He also worked for Radio Nova (Porto) as a sound designer and in 2010/11 for CTB, a theatre company in Braga, Portugal, where he was sound and video designer for theatre plays, working with stage directors such as Alexej Schipenko, Anna Langhof, Rui Madeira, António Augusto Barros and Manuel Guede Oliva.

In 2014 he founded Atmos Aerial Filming and delved into the drone aerial world.

In 2016 he started Synkronos, a freelance production platform into both the cinema and commercial worlds.
Also in 2016 he premiere his first short film META-SEMIOPTIKA which premiered in several festivals in Portugal, Finland, France and awarded in Germany.
At the time he is currently developing CALLIOPE, an experimental short film about the realm of the Mouseion, the Temple of the Muses and GUGALANNA, a documentary about the sacred connection between Man and Cow.
