BIO

HI! I'M JACK.

For the past ten years, I’ve been delivering commercials, short films, documentaries, music videos and more, for the most diverse clients. All while getting an extensive technical education at accredited institutions like the New York Film Academy and the Prague Film School.

After obtaining my BFA in History of Art and Performing Arts in Italy (my home Country), I moved to San Francisco in 2017 for an MA in Writing & Directing for Film at the Academy of Art University, which I completed in May 2019.
