Fábio Santos was born in December 1993 in Oporto, Portugal and grew up in Lavra, Matosinhos.
In September 2008 he started high school in Escola Secundária Augusto Gomes. During that period he started to earn interest in Adobe After Effects. His first steps were made with the help of Andrew Kramer’s tutorials on VideoCopilot.net. He then created the YouTube channel facstudiosproduction in 2009 and started posting some test videos there. One of those videos caught the attention of director Tim Richardson that invited Fábio to be a visual effects artist on his film Harvey Putter and the Ridiculous Premise, a Harry Potter parody that screened in major conventions.
In 2011 he launched a website for FacS Studios, opening a new department, FacS Studios TV, that broadcasts original shows. A new YouTube channel was also created facstudios.
In October 2012, he made his first short Ajuste de Contas.
In June 2013, he traveled to the United States for the first time to work as a production assistant on Tim Richardson’s new parody The Throbbit.
