About Jay

I am former U.S. Marine, and my primary "day job" is as a web and multimedia developer. As much as I enjoy being active in the entertainment industry, my day job pays the bills...

Producer: I have produced or co-executive produced several short films, and am currently working on a few feature length films.

Director: I have directed several short films and music videos, including several films for the 48 hour film project competition.

Editor: As with directing, I have edited several short films, several music videos, and 48 hour films.

Cinematographer: I use a Sony 3d camera.

Musician: I was a guitarist for a few local bands, but have since moved into electronic music and computer aided music production. I use software ranging from Sony Acid to Ableton live to create a lot of the EDM and symphonics, while using my recording studio to add in the live guitars, keys, and vocals..

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ringling College of Art and Design, in Film and computer graphics and animation.

I have produced, directed, shot and edited several different projects, one of was a pilot project " Behind The Tap" which was done in 2d and 3d.

    Horrors of War (2006)
    Film (Action, Horror, Sci-Fi and War) Miscellaneous Crew HORRORS OF WAR derives from the "B" movie, Grindhouse tradition, made to play like a like a midnight movie. It is an independently-produced film made in a B-movie style, yet with a dramatic grounding and an eye toward bigger production values.......FILM SYNOPSIS: 'Feeling the pressure from Allied advance, Hitler unleashes his secret weapons giving rise to a type of warfare the world has never seen. Throughout the European theater of WWII, Lieutenant John Schmidt comes face to face with these "weapons." The Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S., precursor to the C.I.A.) initiates missions behind enemy lines to find the source of the weapons terrorizing U.S. soldiers fighting the Third Reich. Schmidt is joined by Captain Joe Russo and his group of war-hardened GIs who have experienced for themselves the all-too-real horrors of war in battle. Together, they must find and destroy Hitler's horde of nightmare weapons before his horrific vision can be fully realized.' Written by Philip R. Garrett
