A Philadelphia native, Andrew Renzi’s love for film came from his father, who was a cinephile. His father would drill him on classic films of the 60’s and 70’s. When his dad passed, he made a commitment to pursue the dream that he and his father had for him of being a filmmaker. 

Currently, Andrew is directing and showrunning a limited docuseries for Netflix about two mountaineers who took on Pepsi in the ‘90s in a David and Goliath battle that would change advertising law forever. Renzi recently released The Curse of Von Dutch, a three episode docuseries for Hulu about the rise and fall of the early 2000s most loved and reviled fashion trend. The Curse of Von Dutch was named to Variety’s “Best Doc Series of 2021” list. He is in post-production on a new feature documentary about “The Quarterback Whisperer” from Argent Media (The Social Dilemma) and Mandalay Sports Media (The Last Dance). 

In November 2019, Showtime released Ready For War, a feature documentary directed by Renzi that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and examines the cause and effect of deporting immigrant veterans to Mexico, where many are recruited by drug cartels. The film was produced alongside multi-platinum artist Drake and filmmaker David Ayer, as well as PRETTYBIRD’s Kerstin Emhoff and Candice Dragonas. At the end of 2019, Renzi completed the Stop Opioid Silence Campaign, a national call to action for policy reform which featured stories of loss and recovery from 12 people around the country alongside 25 US Senators and 50 Members of Congress from crisis states.

The year prior, Renzi directed They Fight, which was produced alongside rapper and Academy Award-winner Common. The film, which premiered on Fox, tells the story of a group of young teenage boys whose training at a local Washington, D.C. boxing gym becomes an integral part of steering them away from the violence in Southeast D.C.. 

From the onset of his career, Andrew has demonstrated his discerning eye for high quality storytelling. His first two short films, The Fort and Karaoke!, were both selected for the Sundance Film Festival and would go on to win numerous awards including the Panavision Future Filmmaker Award and Short of the Year on Later that same year, Andrew directed and produced the Sotheby’s-commissioned feature documentary, Fishtail – an exquisite portrait of Montana cattle farming that connects modern day processes to the old American West.  

Andrew joined PRETTYBIRD’s roster of creatives in 2019 where he continues to direct documentaries and branded content.
