Cyrus Toulabi is currently a senior at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts studying Film and Television Production. He believes that successful filmmakers are those who immerse themselves in the craft and learn every aspect of the process. Cyrus directs, writes, edits, and produces his own scripts and those of other students. He has over six years of experience in Final Cut Pro, Photoshop, Pro Tools, Motion, and various other post-production programs.
At age 15, Cyrus recieved the 2007 National Student Emmy¨ Award for Excellence in the Entertainment & Arts/Cultural Affairs category for his weekly high school television series. He was flown out to New York City and was honored by the National Academy for Television Arts and Sciences. That moment, Cyrus realized he could actually pursue a career in the field and he hasn't looked back since.
With internships at MTV, ABC's LIVE! with Regis and Kelly, Howcast Media, Showtime Networks & Focus Features, Cyrus aspires to jump into the field immediately after graduation in May 2013.
