Director Biography - John Knight

Hey! My name's John, and I'm a director based in Los Angeles, California. I'm currently a full-time student at Biola University, and plan to graduate in December 2021. I am currently learning as much as I can about directing, writing, and building my reel. I dream of one day directing a Fast and Furious movie, but I acknowledge that nothing will ever top Fast Five.

Director Statement

I wrote and directed 'Better Off' to turn in for a five-page, dialogue-centric assignment for my Advanced Directing course at Biola University. I learned a lot while making this film, and made some great new friends.
