BIO

Avi Youabian is an Iranian Filmmaker born in Tehran, Iran. He and his parents fled to the U.S. during the Iran / Iraq war. Moving to Los Angeles he quickly developed an obsession with making short films with his younger brother.

Avi began working as an editor at the age of 17, and over the course of his career, his directing and editing work has spanned across features, television series, documentaries, and several pilots that have gone straight to series. He’s collaborated with filmmakers including Greg Berlanti, Gary Fleder, John Wells, Brad Anderson, David Goyer and Jon M. Chu.

Avi directed the award-winning digital series, Tainted Love – a gritty live action graphic novel starring Orlando Jones, Eric Roberts and Maz Jobrani. ​Tainted Love​ was recognized by Variety as one of the “Top 10 Digital Series of 2013.” He then directed Tom Clancy’s Wildlands for producer Roberto Orci.
