Andrew Proctor is an artist and writer living in Brooklyn specializing in avant-garde, experimental, and surrealist works. 
He graduated Seton Hall University in 2019 with a BA in Broadcasting and Visual Media and while there, worked on dozens of projects and short films and had every roll from director to crafty. He also interned at CNBC for 8 months in their Long Form Unit and Edit Department, helping create hour-long specials with Marcus Lemonis and assisting the editor for CNBC's "Staten Island Hustle."
He's written and directed six short films, three of which are avant-garde. One of those, his most recent, "Crumbs," premiered at the Big Picture Festival in Peoria, Illinois in November 2019 and was a semi-finalist at the LA Cinefest Festival in Los Angeles. 
Other than short films, he's also a screenwriter, having written one completed screenplay, "Plato's Cave," and is working on two others. "Plato's Cave" went on to win the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2019 and be a Quarter-Finalist in ScreenCraft's Drama Screenplay Competition in 2018.
He currently works as a freelance film assistant director and recently completed two short NYU films: Marcel André's "The First Supper" and Beccah Crabtree's "The First Job." He is now the 2nd AD on Nadja Marcin's experimental first feature film, "Pocahontas Returns," which will be filming in December 2019 and January 2020, and the first AD on Chris Aurilio's surreal short film "Act iii, Scene 1."
As a PA, he's worked on numerous short film sets and has begun to branch out into commercial work with his involvement in Happy Place's commercial for Kinder in December 2019.
