David Mahmoudieh

David Mahmoudieh (born 1984, London, England) is an Iranian film and music video director, screenwriter and guest film critic. He directs music videos under a variety of pseudonyms, including "R&D", "Merlin", "Uncle Rumple" and "Jury & Executioner".

Written works include the short-stories Perception, Return To Sender and I Kill Kilkally, the short films The Confession and Wolves Who Hunt Smiling, and the feature screenplay Fool's Gold[1].



In 1999, whilst still at school, David won The Casa Nostra short-story competition and was consequently approached to pen a screen adaptation of Frederick Ayer's turn-of-the-century novel Reminiscences. Upon the completion of his schooling, Mahmoudieh began development on three projects, including an original comic book series, an uncommissioned Batman graphic novel and his first feature-length screenplay, Fools Gold.

From the year 2000 onwards, David began working as a Trainee 3rd and later 1st AD (Assistant Director) on a number of TV shows and films, including The Outer Limits and Wolf Lake [2].

In March 2008 David's short-script Rain won the award of "Best Short Script 2008" at the ECU European Film Festival in Paris [3]. The script also went on to finish 2nd in the 2009 Hollywood Movie Deal Screenplay Contest (Shorts Category) [4], 2nd again in the "Best Short Sci-Fi/Fantasy Screenplay" category at IFFF Film Festival at Raleigh Studios, Los Angeles [5], and finally Runner-Up in two categories "(Best Dramatic & Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Script)" at the AOF Film Festival Writer's Awards Ceremony in Pasadena.

It was announced in 2011 that David is adapting Rain into a feature-film, with David attached as writer/director.


David Mahmoudieh is the second-cousin of the award-winning architect and designer Yasmine Mahmoudieh.
