Cinema


 



Ivan King attended an art school to become a comic-book artist, but, during the studies, he decided to dedicate himself to cinema.

When he was 15, he began filming short movies, as a director, editor and actor.

In 2010 he created the “king UNIT“, a filmakers team.

His first important short film was “Like God” (2012), winner of the Best Short Film Award at The Reign of Horror Short Movie Awards 2013, followed by “The House of the Rising Sun” (2014), winner of the Silver Award at California Film Awards 2014.

Nowadays Ivan King is more focused on directing music videos than films, but he plans to work on movies again in the future.
