Hi! I’m Liz Rizzo, short-form director and aspiring television director. My dream in life is to direct eight episodes of television in a year! I’ve had this dream ever since I shadowed on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and the director told me that’s the max number of episodes a television director could manage in one year. Bring it on!
In the time before television figures out how to discover and hire short form directors who were born to direct television, I spend my days working full-time as an account manager in audio post production and my mornings, nights and weekends working on awesome short-form projects. Up next in 2014: Commercial specs! Webisodes! And a short film!
As a director, I love working with other people’s pieces. Coming into a project and putting together the perfect combination of elements to match a vision – whether that’s set by a television creator or a screenwriter. No “film by” credits for me, please; it’s the collaborative nature of the medium and the creative energy on set that feed my soul.
My last film short was a blast! Check it out:
Zero Sight: Bad Call is here! Released in 2013 on Stage 5 TV’s YouTube show, The Continuum.
A regular female assassin when she plays Halo, gamer girl Veronica gets real power in her hands when she steals a mysterious woman’s phone during a one-night stand gone south. Now a single anonymous text message can kill anyone she wants. And she’ll have to use all her first-person shooter skills when one bad call has her scouting a real professional assassin across suburban rooftops. Welcome to the world of “Zero Sight,” where hapless assassins work for a femme fatale with an eye for opportunities.
