Aaron Wolf is a director, actor and writer based in Los Angeles. An honors graduate from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, Aaron also worked with the improv comedy troupe The Groundlings. He is the co-founder of Howling Wolf Productions.
Wolf’s narrative films include the award-winning Guest House, starring Michael Gross (Family Ties, Tremors, Suits) and Heather Lind (Boardwalk Empire, Turn); and The Walk, starring Wolf and Oscar- and Emmy-nominee Peter Riegert (Animal House, Crossing Delancey, The Mask). Currently, Wolf is wrapping up post-production on the feature film, TAR, a thriller about an ancient creature beneath the La Brea Tar Pits that is awoken by the construction of the new Los Angeles subway, attacking the city and a family. Wolf stars as the son, along with Oscar-nominees Timothy Bottoms (Last Picture Show, The Paper Chase) and Graham Greene (Dances With Wolves, The Green Mile, Die Hard) and Max Perlich (Cliffhanger, Maverick).
Recently, Wolf began touring around the country with his feature documentary, Restoring Tomorrow. Wolf’s personal journey of rediscovery comes alive in this extraordinary story of a treasured Hollywood landmark and local temple built by the original Hollywood moguls, near demise, and a community’s determination to achieve the impossible, save the Wilshire Boulevard Temple. The film has received extensive coverage in publications such as The Los Angeles Times, Tablet Magazine, Guideposts and The Times of Israel.

Wolf is in pre-production on the comedy LD University and its companion documentary (We Are All) disAbled, drawing from his personal experiences to tackle the urgent topic of learning disabilities and education.
Sometimes the tunnel dims. It’s hard to see the light. It’s too far. It’s not there. We keep walking hoping it’s still there. Hoping.
