Filmed in Brazil during the shooting of the feature film “The Killer” ( O’Matador)

Since he first began his career as an actor in Portugal 18 years ago, Diogo Morgado found himself viewing every set he worked on as his own version of film school, using every break between takes as an opportunity to learn from the crew about all of the technical aspects involved in production behind the camera. An avid photographer with a love for storytelling, directing became of particular interest for Diogo. And after completing a script for the short film “Break,” Diogo knew he was ready to make the transition to director. In addition to writing and directing “Break” in 2013, Diogo also served as one of the executive producers as well as co-editor of the Portuguese (subtitled) film.

Now an established, successful actor in both the United States and his native Portugal, “Signal” is Diogo Morgado’s second English short film, after “Excuse,” which he also wrote, directed, and edited. Morgado’s made his feature film directorial debut with the Portuguese comedy “Malapata,” which was released in theaters in Portugal in March, 2017.

Morgado, through his production company SLX Productions, is currently in production on”Solum,” an English project he co-wrote and will be directing.

Director Statement

diogo-morgado“What I love about short films is that they are like a snack… they don’t have to leave you fully satisfied… they don’t have to fill in all the blanks for you… the story can become whatever the audience feels it should be, to them.”

—  Diogo Morgado
