About Honeymoon / Leigh Janiak / Phil Graziadei

Honeymoon is a super creepy tale of newlyweds Paul and Bea, and how something beautiful can become monstrous. The film was written by Leigh Janiak and Phil Graziadei, and directed by Janiak.

Leigh Janiak’s first obsession with movies grew after becoming particularly enamored with The Goonies. Using her parents’ VHS camcorder, she spent her childhood in suburban Cleveland creating and filming sketches and then starring in and directing plays as the president of her high school theatre troupe. She attended undergraduate at NYU, where she focused on creative writing and comparative religion, studying abroad in Germany and Israel. She then attended graduate school at the University of Chicago, enrolled in a doctoral program in modern Jewish studies with an emphasis on violence and identity in post–World War II Hebrew literature. In Chicago, her passion for filmmaking was reignited by Fire Escape Films, a community of student filmmakers. After working on numerous short films and experimenting with Super 16 and old-school Moviola editing, she ultimately abandoned her PhD and moved to Los Angeles to pursue film full time. In Los Angeles, Leigh worked at Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, and at Misher Films in both development and production. Leigh and her writing partner, Phil Graziadei, met as undergraduates at NYU. They’ve been friends for over a decade and writing partners since 2005. They’ve written numerous feature films together. Honeymoon is Leigh’s feature film directing debut.

Born and raised in Germany, Phil Graziadei moved to New Hampshire before studying comparative literature at NYU. As a graduate student at the University of Chicago, he taught courses in German language, literature, and film. He has worked as a writer’s and director’s assistant to David Chase. Phil currently lives in Los Angeles, where he is an editor at one of the city’s premiere arts institutions. Honeymoon is Phil’s first produced feature.
