Mini Bio (1)

Born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Conrad Faraj and his family moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in the summer of 2003, the same year he took an interest in filmmaking and began making short videos with his school friends and local actors. After spending multiple weekends and school holidays making over 100 short films, music videos, and internet shows, Faraj made his first serious attempt at filmmaking in late 2007 with the mafia-esque short film "The Candyman Conspiracy" (2007). After getting a lot of recognition for his amateur efforts, Faraj then started pre-production on "The Artist" (2009) a senior project for his high school media class. The dramatic film went on to compete at various film festivals around the U.S. and was awarded 2nd Place in the Drama category at the Indie Gathering International Film Festival. It wasn't until mid-2010 that Faraj began production on his first feature film: the indie horror "The Shadow People" (2011) which stars Peter Marquardt, Joanne Wurm, and Jim Strang. With a 138 minute running time, The Shadow People had a limited theatrical release as well as a special screening at the largest paranormal/horror convention in the U.S., the Scarefest Horror Convention in Lexington, Kentucky. In mid-2012, Faraj directed the independent sci-fi epic "The Wind is Watching" (2013) which was shot on the Red Epic-X at 5K resolution, making Faraj the youngest filmmaker ever to direct a feature using the highest resolution in digital cinema. The film is slated to be released in early 2015. In 2013, Faraj also produced and co-wrote the independent horror film "Young Harvest" directed by Matthew Ward. Faraj is currently in pre-production on his first major Hollywood feature titled "Remedy for the Dark Minded" starring Sammi Hanratty and Cameron McKendry.
