Andrew Putschoegl

A native of Oakdale, Minnesota, Andrew discovered his passion for filmmaking from an early age, working at public access stations and interning on studio films such as Kevin Smith's Mallrats and D3: The Mighty Ducks while still in high school. In college, Andrew worked as the assistant to the director on the New Line Cinema feature film Sugar & Spice, juggling his college courses and a full-time production and post-production schedule.

Since graduating with a degree in film production from Chapman University, Andrew has worked as a director, editor and producer on various types of projects, including directing his first feature, the independent film Window Theory, as well as award-winning shorts and commercials. Andrew coproduced and edited the critically acclaimed documentary feature Stephen Tobolowsky’s Birthday Party. In 2011, his short film, Hello Caller, screened at festivals such as Slamdance, SXSW, Provincetown, Maui, and Newport Beach, winning the prestigious Theatrical Offer Award from Slamdance (resulting in the film being shown in more than a dozen cities around the world), and receiving audience awards for best short film at both the Provincetown and Maui film festivals the same weekend.
