Moh Azima can trace his filmmaking ambitions to Disco Frankenstein, a play he wrote, directed and starred in for the school talent show. He was 8 years old. Years later he joined the drama department in high school and convinced the faculty to allow him to adapt M. Butterfly, a risqué subject for any public school setting much less one in the bible belt. It was an unqualified success. He made his filmmaking debut at Sundance with his short TRAPPEDINFREEDOM, where he was tapped by The Sundance Channel to contribute a Snapshot Diary of his experience alongside noted filmmakers John Malkovich and Rebecca Miller. After a stint shooting music videos all around the world for artists like Interpol, Cold War Kids, Chromeo and Lenka, he entered the world of commercial filmmaking shooting ads for GE, Chase, Diageo and many others.
