|Director, Producer, Editor Iris Green began her love of filmmaking at the young age of eight when she performed in several short films at the Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. However, it wasn’t what was in front of the camera that interested her as much as what was going on behind it.
Educated at the University of Texas at Austin and a graduate of the Los Angeles Film School, Iris began her career primarily as an editor under the tutalidge of editor Donn Cambern. Iris’ thesis film Sidewinder Café (recipient of a substantial grant from Eastman Kodak) screened at the Winfemme film festival and garnered multiple awards at the LAFS Industry Screening.
Having edited multiple music videos and feature films Iris’ feature directorial debut was the psychological drama thriller The Jinn, featuring Hotel Rwanda, and Pirates of the Carribean 3 star Hakeem Kae-Kazim. The Jinn was immediately followed by her second feature film Hand in Hand which premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival in March of 2007. Iris is currently in the process of developing her third feature film, an adaptation of a French novel.
In addition to her feature film experience Iris shot and directed a Smart Car promotional video for Elastic Lab. In addition to producing a live performance of Runaway Train by ROTOR( directed by Brian Spalding) her directing music video credits include Firewater’s “Secret” and Evan Roman’s “Goys” and an upcoming video for Macklemore’s “Love Song.”
