About Me

 

Andrew Reid was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. He is a DGA Award winning director and recent graduate from USC School of Cinematic Arts.

Since his tenure at USC, he has worked at Pearl Street Films, Paramount Pictures, Intel, NBCUniversal, Discovery Communications and Sony Music Entertainment where he wrote, directed and produced.

At the age of 21, while studying at University of Florida, he became paralyzed from the chest down. A malformation of his blood vessels (AVM), resulted in a rupture which compressed his spine while he was sleeping, leaving him completely paralyzed. He was told by doctors that he would never walk again, but with dedication and perseverance he regained movement. Today, he walks with a cane and continues to progress in strength and health. He became an advocate for the disabled community and expanded his film production skills from Miami to Los Angeles.

His USC thesis film - ASIA A, won the Jury Award at the 2018 DGA Student Awards and was a Semi-Finalist for the 45th Student Academy Awards. It has screened at LA Shorts, HollyShorts, Martha’s Vineyard African American and over 30 other film festivals. It is being developed into a feature with the support of the 2019 Tribeca Film Institute Sloan Filmmaker Fund. You can learn more about the film at www.WhatisASIAA.com and stream on Amazon Prime.

Recently, he finished the short film - Road to Zion, which is being developed into a limited series and has been selected for IFP Week 2019. Also, he produced the short film - Geeta, which won Best Student Short Film, DTLA Film Festival and was a nominee for Best Short Film, NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) 2019.
