About JT

JT Seaton is a graduate of the CalArts Directing program. Shortly after snagging a diploma, he wrote and directed the short horror film NIGHTSHADOWS, which won several awards at various film festivals. His first leap into the world of feature films came with the horror/comedy GEORGE’S INTERVENTION. GEORGE’S INTERVENTION screened all over the world, winning multiple awards before landing a distribution deal with Breaking Glass Pictures. Next came DIVINATION, a multi award winning short film. DIVINATION found a home at the Hillbilly Horror Show (Vol. 3) and was seen during the 2014 Halloween season at amusement parks across the country, sponsored by HorrorHound. His current short horror extravaganza, THE PERIPHERAL, is coming to a 2015 film festival near you. In addition to terrifying people with his own creations, JT is also responsible for sharing the nightmares of other horror filmmakers. In 2011, he co-founded the NOLA HORROR FILM FEST (in New Orleans). Now in its 5th season, the NOHFF is growing and spreading fear throughout Louisiana… and the world.
