Chicago born filmmaker Jack Martin has been telling larger-than-life stories since the age of eight. His ambitions broke barriers early on when he attended USC's School of Cinematic Arts and 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. In the last five years, Jack has worked on a number of big budget projects, including The Lion King, Godzilla vs Kong, and Pacific Rim 2.
His most recent short Sci-Fi Thriller, the 2019 Film Pipeline Finalist "MANHUNT", screened at festivals all across the world including the the 2022 Comic Con International Film Festival. His first feature film, the Sci-Fi Adventure BOLT FROM THE BLUE, will have its World Premiere at this year's 30th Annual Austin Film Festival. No matter the story, Jack is always looking to capture the child in all of us.
