About

As a director, Xandy Smith has proven his versatility across a range of formats, genres, and budgets. His post production prowess as an editor and colorist, as well as his rich experience with photography and illustration, contribute to his style and control of the filmmaking medium.

Raised by a father who is a popular underground author and a mother who is a professional storyteller, it’s no wonder that his childhood led to an interest in the arts. His first movie made in a sandbox at the age of four began a constant exploration of filmmaking, leading through his education at NYU film school, to Los Angeles where he assisted some of the industry's top commercial directors, learning the 30-second format very intimately. He has gone on to helm numerous national spots of his own with several prestigious production companies and continues to thrive in the commercial industry.

Much of Xandy’s success in commercials stems from his passion for narrative filmmaking and working closely with actors. His feature directorial debut, Solver, sold out select theaters across the country before streaming on Amazon Prime and other services. His short films have entertained at festivals, leading HBO to pick up his short, Trespass, starring Harry Lennix (Man of Steel) and Nelsan Ellis (True Blood), who also wrote the film. Xandy understands the importance of telling a story and has spent years with highly regarded acting coaches to fortify his craft as a narrative director.

A lover of camera gear and editorial tech, Xandy also takes advantage of the creative playground afforded by music videos, and always welcomes the chance to experiment with new tools and visual styles. He’s directed everything from chart-topping rock to YouTube-sensation rap, Grammy nominated hip-hop, and the cult genre of psychobilly.

Passionate about every aspect of bringing stories to life on the screen, Xandy is always looking for the next project to add to the work already on his horizon.
