Behind The Scenes

Ali started his career assisting producers on national commercials at the Artists Agency. He followed that up with forming a successful short form department at Venturer working with the industry giant, Thom Beers.

Currently, he is focused on developing and producing content for TV as well as brands.


He has led teams in developing diverse content in multiple genres, from branded content for Legal Zoom to a travel show for the Croatian Government. He has built ideas from scratch and assessed outside submissions.

He has recently been a part of the development team for the film 'Empress', written by Oscar winner Ron Bass.




As a producer Ali has led crews of up to twenty two across China and Croatia for multiple travel series. He has produced studio content as well as on location, under his own production and under others.

He believes in the power of detailed planning to ensure the creative freedom on set.

“with the help of Ali Murtaza's hilariously spot-on silent-era film short created for this production—and the chaos that ensues when everyone shows up in one place.”
