Biography

Feature and TV director Howard Deutch, the only son of music publishing wiz Murray Deutch, began his career in the advertising department of United Artists Records (where his father was company president) prior to going into business for himself. As a partner in Kanew-Manger-Deutch, one of Hollywood's most successful movie trailer companies, he collaborated with innumerable filmmakers in creating award-winning trailers before making the leap from advertising to directing music videos for performers like Billy Idol ("Flesh for Fantasy") and Billy Joel ("Keeping the Faith"). Deutch also honed his skills under the tutelage of Kurt Dempster at New York's Ensemble Studio Theatre, directing several plays including "Landscape with Waitress" and "Surprise".
