Salvador’s career as a film editor began in 1956 until he was given the opportunity to become a film director.

Most of Salvador’s projects are action movies because he has been a favorite co-worker of action stars like Fernando Poe Jr., Rudy Fernandez, Phillip Salvador, and Senators Bong Revilla Jr. and Lito Lapid.

Augusto Salvador was awarded by Fernando Poe Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award at the 30th Luna Awards of the Film Academy of the Philippines on August 26, 2012.

Bong and Phillip were two of the action stars who paid tribute to Salvador when they learned that one of their respected directors has passed away.

He was the director behind some of the popular movies such as; Bertud ng Putik, Ang Agimat: Anting-anting ni Lolo, Kilabot at Kembot, Alas-dose, Armadong Hudas, Maginoong Barumbado and to name a few.

The remains of the director are in St. Peter’s Chapel, Bangkal, Meycauayan, Bulacan.

According to Phillip, Augusto Salvador’s bereaved family has not yet decided on the day of his funeral.
