Mike Warzin

Arts & Sciences London


Mike Warzin has been making films since the fifth grade when he set up two VCRs and a mixer in his childhood basement so he could edit and lay soundtracks over his home videos. Thankfully he dropped out of Purdue’s engineering program after three semesters to pursue a degree in the arts by studying film and photography at Columbia College Chicago. Warzin’s career in advertising started in Portland at Wieden+Kennedy where he worked as an art director and writer on the Nike business for nearly four years before transitioning to a senior creative role at Anomaly in New York. His work as a creative for Nike, Dick's Sporting Goods, and Budweiser gained awards and recognition from the Cannes Lions, The One Show, AICP, the Clios, the Effie Awards, and the D&AD's. Throughout this time, Warzin was fortunate to collaborate with and learn from A-list directors, DPs, and editors, many of whom were encouraging of his desire to direct. Ultimately, he took their advice and since then has completed projects for Google, Beats by Dre, Brand Jordan, Spotify, Adidas, Smirnoff, Reese’s, KFC, and Brooks, among others. He’s been with Arts & Sciences since January 2017. Arts
