About Jesus

Hi fellow filmmakers.

I'm a Writer/Director/Editor/Visual Effects Artist. My daily job involves working in visual effects. Currently I'm working at Weta, Peter Jackson's company, in New Zealand.

As a filmmaker I write and produce my own stories, so far mostly short films. But now it's the time to move forward to feature films. I am developing a feel-good drama/comedy with a lot of music (mainly rap, also other genres) and lovely old people. The story is about very different people who hate each other but have to work together for a common goal, discovering in the end they have something much important than anything: a family.

If you have time, take a look at my logline section to know more about the project. Maybe you can help me somehow or even get involved!

Of course, if anybody needs help or advise with anything regarding writing, directing, editing or visual effects, just drop me a note. My door is always open.

Jesus Diez Perez.
