Copywriter and filmmaker, David Rakowiecki started in advertising writing
award winning TV spots for major brands including Heineken, Amstel Light, Sprite and Converse. He found advertising creatively unfulfilling
and turned to writing screenplays.
He has attended NY Film Academy, where he wrote and directed the shorts The Bottle and Five Cent Refund.
After NYFA, he wrote and directed an Olympics-themed commercial for Heineken that was recognized in the New York Times and took lessons in guerilla improv technique at
Upright Citizens' Brigade Theatre in New York.
David created the film Spoiler Alert, which is a black comedy about Brad, the operator of a movie scoop website and Harrison, a down on his luck film director who has squandered his artistic abilities in pursuit of easy paydays.
