In the early 2000s, he found a love for movies and started making short films. He earned an Academy Award nomination for his first short film entitled Two Cars, One Night. He then went on to write, direct, and even star in a few full-length films.
The first film that he created and starred in was entitled Eagle vs Shark, and was an instant hit among romantic comedy fans.
In 2019, Waititi wrote and directed the movie Jojo Rabbit, which is based on the novel Caging Skies by Christine Leunens. The movie is about a child that is growing up in Nazi Germany during the 1940s.
