Ayz Waraich turned heads back in 2008 when he released his short film, 'White Red Panic' on Vimeo - everything about the acting, the writing, the visuals, the short film as a whole, would have fooled most as to the size and scope of production-resources available. Yet, the entire project came in south of $1k. People were shocked, and appropriately so. Ayz became known as a director who could pull off an incredibly cinematic look and feel with nothing more than an HV30 and a keen eye for talented actors and perfect locations.
Fast-forward several years and 'White Red Panic' helped spark a career including several acclaimed short films, his character-driven feature debut, 'To Our Bright White Hearts', and a time-travel epic, 'Divine River' (in production). Ayz's previous work officially screened at Sundance, and was selected as a finalist by Kevin Spacey's Triggerstreet program.
