Raised in the beauty of the sleepy coastal town of San Luis Obispo California, Aron Paul Orton has been playing with story and images since he got his first Christmas wish of Star Wars action figures at the age of nine. He might be a little old to still be playing but he took those formidable years and turned it into a successful career of storytelling (but he has been known to bring out the action figures out of retirement to block a scene for his keys). Starting as an editor, Aron has cut over 300 hundred commercials for master directors such as Poe Pytka, Marcus Nispel, and Theodore Melfi featuring celebrities such as Kelly Ripa and Stephen Curry. In 2010 he threw his hat into the directing arena as he did editing, with gusto and all-nighters. Taking inspiration from Ansel Adams and his expansive eye and love of contrast Aron's first spots were featured in Shoot Magazines New Directors showcase. He has been directing ever since. Big brands such as Old Spice, JBL and LG have all enlisted his artistic eye and storytelling skills. In addition, he edited the major theatrical release film called Delhi Belly for Disney/UTV, now on Netflix. " A landslide of catastrophes keeps three hapless roommates one small step ahead of jealous boyfriends, faithless lovers, zealous cops and gun-toting gangsters in “Delhi Belly,” a smartly paced, highly entertaining Bollywood gag fest" as written by Ronnie Scheib in Variety magazine.
Aron’s philosophy “Prepare for everything before you get on set, once you're there it’s in you’re head and then you can find inspiration at the moment.”
