Chicago born filmmaker Jack Martin is driven by larger than life stories through an adventurous, humorous, and heartfelt light. His ambitions broke barriers from an early age as he directed over a dozen shorts and even his first feature film before graduating high school.
Jack attended USC's School of Cinematic Arts, where he was 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 worked 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 it represents his Blockbuster goals.
MANHUNT, a 2019 Film Pipeline Finalist, is one of nearly a dozen Feature & Television projects he has in development, including a 90s family adventure film Jack is developing with Mandalay Pictures. No matter the genre, style, or story, Jack is always looking to explore the child in all of us.
