Jason Trembath was born on December 5th 1985 in Melbourne Victoria, before moving to Weipa, (Cape York) Queensland and then later growing up in Central Queensland.
Jason fell in love with movies at an early age and progressed from movies and music videos in scroll to short films and other projects in University.
After working on the Channel V Music Bus in 2004/05, Jason changed his degree to Business Marketing, so that he could learn how better promote and manage his future film projects.
In 2004, Jason enlisted into the Part-Time Army Officer training with the Australian Army Reserves. He graduated from the Royal Military College Duntroon in February 2007 as an Infantry Second-Lieutenant.
Jason was subsequently promoted to First-Lieutenant and then Captain. He has had 10 years experience in Military Management, which has been an incredible experience base for effective film producing.
After completing University, Jason sourced and attained funding to produce his first low/no budget feature film “Sharkmen” as a ‘one-man crew’ (Writer/Director/Producer/Cinematography/Visual Effects). He then sourced additional private financing to complete Post-Production on the film.
Due to how he completely produced “Sharkmen” on his own, in 2009 Jason was invited by the Director of Photography on “Desperate Housewives” to shadow and learn from him on set of Season 6 at Universal Studios, Los Angeles CA.
In November 2013 Jason was attached to be Transmedia Producer and Interactive Designer/Developer on the Australian Army’s documentary on the Afghanistan War. “The Longest War: The Australian Army in Afghanistan” was launched on 7 May 2015 by the Chief of Army Lieutenant General David Morrison AO and Minister for Defence Kevin Andrews at the Australian War Memorial.
