Next Director Award 2016 Interview - Brad Lubin

US born director Brad Lubin never wanted to be anything else when he grew up. In fact, he made his first film at just age 11 in 1990, directing himself in the role of Vanilla Ice in a music video for Ice Ice Baby. It was met with much acclaim. “Better than the original,” said Brad’s mom.

Graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography with a BA in Film Production, he promptly moved to Los Angeles to make that dream a reality. After several years working under Craig Gillespie, The Farrelly brothers, and Mark Neveldine, (and carrying thousands of cups of coffee along the way), he worked his way up from intern to director’s assistant.
 
Known for his comedic style that is equal parts accessible and aspirational, Brad has been nominated for numerous young director Awards and has had official selections at film festivals nationwide. And, in 2016 he was shortlisted for the D&AD Next Director Award. We caught up with him to hear all about his climb to the top and find out if he had any tips and tricks for fledgling directors.
