    Trey Edward Shults was born in Houston, Texas, in 1988. His first foray into the film industry was on Terrence Malick’s upcoming film, VOYAGE OF TIME. It was on that film where he worked in the camera department as a film loader. From there, he interned on Malick’s THE TREE OF LIFE, and then as the camera department production assistant on UNTITLED TERRENCE MALICK PROJECT. Shults’ short film, KRISHA, premiered at SXSW in 2014 in the Narrative Shorts category, where it was awarded Special Jury Recognition for Cinematography. The short film went on to play many other film festivals, including the HollyShorts Film Festival, where it won the award for Best Narrative Short. In the summer of 2014, he completed the feature version of Krisha, that, in 2015 won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at SXSW and screened at the Cannes IFF Critic's Week.
