MIGUEL SAPOCHNIK (Directed by/ Executive Producer) has been making movies since he was old enough to pick up a camera. After a foundation course in art and a stint as a muralist, he worked as a storyboard and scenic artist on such features as Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary and Small Faces. His storyboards have been published in Dazed and Confused magazine. It is this artistic vision that Sapochnik brings to his own work.

In 1996, after completing his postgraduate course at the Arts University College at Bournemouth with distinction (as the youngest student the school ever had), Sapochnik kicked off his professional life working on promos and directing spots for bands like The Charlatans and The Brand New Heavies.

His ambitious 15-minute short film, The Dreamer, was conceived as a project to put Sapochnik on Hollywood's radar. With awards at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and ending up on short lists for both BAFTA and Academy Award® nominations, The Dreamer achieved its purpose, earning Sapochnik development deals with several major studios including Miramax, Focus Features and Working Title as a writer and a director. In 2006, his short film earned him a place on the prestigious Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase as one of the top-25 new directors in the world.

More recently, Sapochnik completed a short film/music video for acclaimed U.K. band UNKLE and is currently working on an original graphic novel titled "The Source.”
