Hey, I'm Sean!

Los Angeles, California

Sean Pontikos is an award winning Greek-American student filmmaker who attends LMU’s School of Film and Television Production. As a writer and director, Sean is driven to tell stories that combine his own take of well known genres with emotional narrative to empower audiences. His first short film, Incompatible, an eight minute non-dialogue piece which he both wrote and directed, re-assessed the sci-fi genre through a story about two androids who fall in love. The film has already won “Best Student Film” at the Los Angeles Film Awards, received honorable mention at the Top Shorts festival, and continues to be accepted at other prestigious festivals. The film also caught the eye of International Emmy award winning producer Christopher Broughton who Sean met whilst interning at 20th Century Fox. Chris has endorsed Sean as his protege describing him as an "up-and-coming charismatic dynamic filmmaker to keep an eye on”, whilst also pledging his support to Sean's next project, Kill For Coco.
