Hi there! I'm Jack O'Brien and I'm an actor, writer, and that annoying guy in the cinema giggling at well placed shots. I've got a huge passion for storytelling of all kinds, on the stage, screen and page. I've trained in drama since 2001 and I have been slowly creating a career for myself since 2009, and I am closer than ever to becoming a succesful actor in Hollywood. It is my dream to be able to make a career out of making people feel things, hope, joy, humor, despair, and everything inbetween, and I know I'm good enough to make it. I hope you will share the journey with me.
Unique traits: Heavy eyebrows, long hair, high voice.

Film by Joe Bauer (Action, Comedy and Sci-Fi) Actor At the age of 10, Australian-born Andi Gibson had what she describes as a close encounter with a flying saucer. Naturally, everyone assumed she was bonkers. That is until one notable evening, 17 years later, when an airborne extra-terrestrial armada launches a nation-wide assault on Andi's home country and at the same time, for unspecified reasons, kidnaps her mother. To add to the debacle, it seems the other nations of the world are far too insulted by their exclusion from the attack to come to Australia's aid. Now it is up to Andi, her hypochondriac brother Elliot, retired boxer cousin Keith and documentary filmmaker friend Cam to stop the attack and rescue Andi's mum. Enlisting the help of Andi's equal-parts mysterious and cringeworthy father, the gang must battle car-chasing spaceships, martial-arts aliens, giant killer robots and, perhaps most frighteningly, a deluge of family secrets in their fight to save Australia. Bloody hell, this is gonna be a long night. Written by Joe Bauer
