This year, the Treasure Coast International Film Festival is proud to present the TCIFF Lifetime Achievement Award to Film Action Director and industry veteran, Isaac Florentine!
Worshiped by his fans for many years, Isaac Florentine has built up his excellent reputation within the movie business. At first attracting the action movie fans, Isaac moved into the mainstream with New Line's release Undisputed II: Last man standing. The film received rave reviews not only for its groundbreaking fighting scenes but also for its complexity and dramatic qualities. The film was also a financial success and was rated #1 in the "Non Theatrical" category of the DVD renters in February 2007. 'Impact Magazine,' the world's leading publication dedicated to the Action/Martial Arts films hailed Isaac as "one of the most talented directors in the genre." Having over ten features and over one hundred and twenty television episodes under his belt, including The Power Rangers Series, Isaac has proven his ability to bring leadership to the set, while providing the project with his own unique artistic flair.
Isaac cut his teeth in the American film industry working as a fight choreographer and a second unit director. Two-and-a-half years later, he directed his first feature, Desert Kickboxer. Despite its hectic sixteen-day schedule and ultra-low budget, Isaac's inspired direction was so impressive that HBO bought the film. Since then, he has worked steadily as a director in film and television, and he continues to impress people with his creative visual style.
