Magellan Rubin is a director based in Los Angeles, California. He began his career as a cinematographer in Colorado, cutting his teeth on sports documentaries and later on commercial projects. Eventually, he got into directing and quickly began to make a name for himself by working on commercials for leading brands and music videos for popular artists.
In 2018, Magellan began writing and developing his first feature film, "A Violent Dance". He is actively working on his plans for the film with other writers and producers in LA. The film will tell the true story of Grant Neal, a promising football standout whose dreams were crushed when he was falsely accused of raping his own girlfriend. She told school administrators repeatedly that he did nothing wrong. They expelled him anyway. Two years later, the investigation was found to be wrought with "racial bias and inaccuracy." Grant was never charged in court for rape or any other crime. However, the damages to his reputation and lifelong dream were already done. Instead of giving up, Grant turned his attention to MMA and was taken under the wing of veteran Nate "The Great" Marquardt. He then led an unprecedented amateur career by racking up six straight wins, including several title fights. He continues to be undefeated after turning professional with a remarkable 46-second submission victory.
As a director, Magellan strives to create content that drives culture and challenges the limits of storytelling. He's turned on by stories that are emotionally charged and capable of impacting people.
