director biography

Indie film director Sev DeMy has been carving his niche in the film scene with three films in that past four years. He gained recognition with his first film, Doo Doo's Revenge (2015), an explosive short about a child facing neglect who ultimately takes matters into his own hands. His second short, Where Branches Break (2017), a film about an ex-convict becoming a killer Uber driver, is much more than its seems. Sev's signature style weaves layered themes in urban settings with fully crafted characters. His latest project, {BLACK title here} is a TV pilot with potential to explore identity and success in a surreal way. The pilot follows James on his day off from work when everything goes wrong at home. Sev's films have screened at multiple Academy Award recognized festivals.
