About me
Darius Norowzian is from a bloodline of photographers and filmmakers. His ethnic mix of cultures and influences has shaped how he views the world, and likely responsible for his attraction to shining a light on stories with social impact. 

 Darius cut his teeth at Ridley Scott Associates, earning the stripes of a director in the advertising world, creating commercials and documentaries for major blue-chip brands such as Hilton, Volvo, Vodafone and BBC to name a few. It was there where he honed his directing talent, crafting films with actors and non-actors alike. Under his direction, actors came across as real people and real people felt comfortable in front of the camera. The results gave him authentic performances that audiences easily connect and engage with. 

With a solid experience built up working in commercials and a passion for directing a feature, natural progression led him to uncovering longer form narratives where he was able to tell richer, captivating stories. His documentary Born A Believer picked up numerous awards on the festival circuit, as did his recently finished short film Out Of Love. He is currently working on a film adaptation of the critically acclaimed book The Lost Boyz by Justin Rollins - a glimpse into the world of south London 90s youth graffiti culture.
