Chicago born filmmaker Jack Martin spends every waking moment imagining the impossible. Jack has always had a deep desire to explore the child in all of us, capturing larger than life stories through an adventurous, humorous, and heartfelt light. His ambitions broke barriers from an early age as he directed dozens of short films and even his first feature film before graduating high school.
Jack attended USC's School of Cinematic Arts, where he became the only student selected to direct two Senior Thesis projects: his short film Bye Bye Bernard and the web-series My Friend D-Rone, which was produced for Ron Howard & Brian Grazer’s New Form Digital. Since graduating, Jack has learned from the pros on a number of big budget projects, including The Lion King, Godzilla vs Kong, and Pacific Rim 2.
His short Sci-Fi Thriller, MANHUNT, is the culmination of these experiences as he terms it his 'mini-blockbuster'. The film is currently traveling the Festival Circuit and is a proof-of-concept for a greater feature film that is currently being written.
Manhunt is one of nearly a dozen other Feature & Television projects in development looking for a home. No matter the genre, style, or story, Jack is always looking for the next impossible adventure.
