Mora Carew is a first generation Nigerian-American director, actress and writer. Her first horror short film "The Piano" was an official selection at the Berlin Flash Film Festival in 2019. She is currently in pre-production of a drama short film and a sci-fi / dark comedy series.
From 2018-2019, Mora apprenticed director Peter Bogdanovich in directing and writing, and assisted him in completing Orson Welles' final film "The Other Side of the Wind". She spent over 1,000 hours of 1-on-1 time with Peter in the editing room, writing together, and watching/analyzing countless classic films.
Mora is a graduate of Upright Citizens Brigade and 4-time recipient of their Diversity Scholarship. She had the amazing experience of performing around the country for 2 years with her improv comedy team. Improv is what got Mora interested in directing - she loved being able to tell stories on stage by coming up with different scenes and scenarios, and change them on the fly based on audience reactions.
Mora has a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh and is a dual citizen of the USA and Nigeria. She previously worked at the Directors Guild of America in the residuals department.
