Sheldon Candis

Baltimore native Sheldon Candis is a graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Sheldon Candis made his feature directorial debut in 2012 with LUV, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Candis recently wrote and directed the docu-narrative series ‘I WILL WHAT I WANT’, a cinematic portrait of ballet phenom Misty Copeland for Under Armour.

Candis continues to impress audiences with the scope of his work, which ranges from short docs and docu-series to television series and feature-length docs. As a writer, producer and director, Candis is drawn to politically charged topics, leading him to create WHO WILL SURVIVE AMERICA, which focuses on gun control, and CROOKED SMILE, a call to action video that challenges America’s war on drugs.

He is set to pen THROW LIKE MO, the bio-pic on baseball star Mo’ne Davis, for Walt Disney Studios.
