Personal Profile

Moe Charif

Graduating from the University of Florida with Honors and holding a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts, Moe set out to pursue his dream in filmmaking. With an eye for photography, he started in 2003 with small projects until he directed and produced "Hunted" in 2005, a short film action thriller that screened at over 18 film festivals worldwide.
The short was nominated for a number of awards including "Best Short Drama", "Best Thriller", and "Best of Festival" and ultimately won "Best Horror" and "Best Short Drama". Moe believes that a film is a harmonious equation bringing all factors together in a perfect fit, which is why he focuses a great deal on all aspects of filmmaking.

When viewing Moe’s work, one can’t help but notice the very high level of quality that he produces. His fastidious attention to detail, strong story sense, cutting edge visual style, savvy business mentality, and talent for utilizing stunning visual effects produce the kind of end result that you'd expect to see in big budget Hollywood films.

In 2003, and in parallel to making short films, Moe got involved in real estate and climbed the ladder quickly managing over $1.2 billion in real estate inventory in the Miami area. In 2006, he realized that his true passion lies in telling stories, and decided to quit his six figured V.P. position and focus solely on making films that inspire people. Shortly after, Moe teamed up with collogue and friend Omar Chavez Jr. and collaborated on writing the screenplay for Exile, his current project.
