Director Biography - Amanda Florian

Amanda Florian is an American director, journalist, and entertainer currently based between the U.S. and Shanghai, China. She grew up in the entertainment industry, training in classical Italian at the age of eight--and in musical theater and pop shortly thereafter. As a young girl, she'd frequently travel to New York City to train in theater, dance, and voice. Florian, alongside her triplet sisters, has performed on NBC, at The Billy Graham Library, and at Seacrest Studios in Charlotte, North Carolina. For 10 years, she and her sisters volunteered to sing at the Festa Italiana, an annual festival in Charlotte that raises money for people with developmental disabilities. Her first documentary film was a 23-minute short on homelessness in Johnson City, Tennessee. And in 2017, Florian devoted a year to traveling and documenting people, venturing all over the continent of Asia. Since then, she has worked on a variety of music videos, scripts, and other creative works.
