Mitchell Zemil is, technically, an award-winning filmmaker.

Born and raised in Sarasota, FL, he moved to New York to study film at NYU. Since then, he's been in a lot of debt, but still feels pretty good about it all.

He received recognition for his short animation, The Ghost in the Scarf, for its sentimental, sweet approach to storytelling. He is currently in post-production for another short, Night in the City, which is very different and has nothing to do with scarves.

Zemil currently works in Brooklyn as a freelance animator, but still makes personal work that is live-action as well, comfortable in all mediums of filmmaking. This led him to being the co-creator of Sarasota Half in Dream, an experimental documentary about his Florida hometown. Forever interested in combining the cerebral and emotional, the strange and the beautiful, he likes to create work that is, like his hair, wild and untamed.
