The son of a Belgian anesthesiologist and an Armenian ophthalmologist, Raffi Asdourian oddly enough has been interested in the world of movies from a very young age. Throughout high school, he wrote and directed several plays for the drama programs and strived to make video filmmaking an accessible tool at his high school. Through his efforts, he chartered the first ever video production class, allowing him to make several short films, which were screened for the entire school body. The collected works of his projects were sold on VHS to the school body selling over 400 units for both his junior and senior year. Raffi then attended the prestigious NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where he continued to follow his dream of pursuing filmmaking as a fulltime career, making a total of twenty short films. Among the films made, "Kuragannon" a ten-minute short premiered in a Kodak sponsored student screening at the 2003 Cannes film festival. His thesis film “Stranger” was admitted into a high profile art gallery, the Florence Lynch Gallery, in Chelsea and was made available for sale while touring over twenty galleries around the world. Raffi Asdourian currently works as a freelance TV/Commercial/Film editor in New York City. He has written four feature length screenplays and has recently completed a new short film "Ai", which was filmed in Japanese.
