You know about Ariel Schulman’s net worth, now see his career.
The Catfish director was not always big in Hollywood. Just like most film producers and directors, his career began shortly after graduating from New York University in 2004. One of his first film productions was his short video called In Defense of Lemmings. He wouldn’t have managed this if he had not majored in an Arts Film Program.
The New York Graduate may have started earning in 2004 but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have experience in the field. In fact, he had always been fascinated with filming ever since he was a kid in high school. Attracting the attention of non-other than Henry Joost.
Henry is also a big film producer. Their long-lasting friendship has seen them work various projects together. These include Box Office Hits such as the Paranormal Activity franchise. They co-directed the 3rd and 4th film installments which grossed millions worth of profits at the Box office. In fact, the 3rd Paranormal Activity movie made roughly $202 million profit from a budget of only $5 million.
With things headed in the right direction, the duo thought it wise to start their own production company called Supermarché. While the center stage and media usually focuses on the actors and actresses in the movies, the directors rarely receive much attention. As such, they usually enjoy their fortune in peace with less hassle from the paparazzi.
With the new production company in place, the duo went to make other films like Nerve released in 2016. The film grossed over $85 million worldwide from a budget of $19 million. Other films include Viral and Mega Man, a classic retro video game franchise also known as Rockman in Japan. The official release date is yet to be announced.
Moving back to the director’s acting career, he went on to appear in a number of short films. These include: The Adventures of Slater’s Friend, If You See Something, Say Something, Jerry Ruis, Shall We Do This? The Pleasure of Being Robbed and Family Tree. Other roles include the TV series Tight Shots.
