My name is Charles Wiedman and I'm an award-winning creative talent. My background is advertising and design, but also includes writing, producing, and directing motion pictures.
I formed RuffHouse in 2003 to create opportunities for telling stories from a highly creative point of view that I hope entertains and inspires.

My short film “32 Governor’s Hill” won at the BloodShots 48 Hour Filmmakers Competition.

I've produced, written, and directed dozens of short films and client videos, written 18+ screenplays. I wrote, produced, and directed "The Sinner" which was filmed in Austin and released in 2012. I'm also a television and film actor. I wrote and directed "The Seed" which was showcased in multiple Film Festivals domestically in 2019. in 2021, I wrote and Directed "Magnificent Beast" which won 18 international film awards.
