Director Biography - Andrew Kadikian

I'm Andrew, a seasoned and award-winning independent filmmaker from LA with a passion for storytelling and a hunger for creativity. I am an expert visual storyteller, it has been my life for as long as I can remember. I use that skill daily in my career as a professional editor but I am also a writer and director of my own narrative projects. My dream genre is action/adventure and I hope to one day be in a position to make a living making feature films that bring back the magic of movies that I saw when I was growing up, classic blockbusters. My production company is called Rogue Division and it features an array of narrative content and caters to an audience over eight thousand strong, spanning multiple platforms.
