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, directing over a dozen shorts and 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 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 other Feature & Television projects in development looking for a home. No matter the genre, style, or story, Jack is always looking to explore the child in all of us
