About Aviv

Aviv Rubinstien is a screenwriter, director, and teacher living in LA. He is writing this bio himself, in the third person, and feels very awkward about it.

With an MFA in screenwriting from Boston University, Aviv has worked as a screenwriter and/or script consulted for over a dozen feature films and TV Pilots. These works include Lift Me Up, Starring Shane Harper, Directed by Mark Cartier and Produced by North of Two Productions, Good Grief, Starring Rachel True, Erik Michael Cole and Jordan Ladd and Directed by Brandon Ford Green, and The Reason, Directed by Randall Stevens and starring Tatyana Ali and Oscar Winner, Louis Gossett Jr.

As a Director, Aviv has created narratives and documentaries including the musical road trip film The Anchorite, which calls on Aviv's own two-decade-long experience as a musician and music video director, and the extreme sports documentary Survive DC, which was recently optioned by 1620 Productions for packaging as a television series. Most recently, Aviv signed a two picture deal with AIR Media which finds him traveling to Asia to direct an original horror movie, Kingdom, and to Nevada to shoot an original western Desertion.

Aviv has been consulting and teaching screenwriting and filmmaking since 2007. He primarily teaches at Studio School in Los Angeles and Grub Street in Boston. He has guest lectured at Boston University and The University of Rhode Island.
