In September 2013, Jared’s sixth short film ‘Chucked’ was hand-picked by Ron Howard and Bryce Dallas Howard as a Winner in their collaborative “Project Imaginat10n” Film Festival with Canon, USA.
With a focus on the beauty and strangeness of love and life, he hopes his work one day aligns with the likes of Sam Mendes and Christopher Nolan.
A Writer, Director, Editor and Composer, Jared is well-rounded in all aspects of film making. His stories range from Drama to Comedy, but his style is often mentioned for its outside-the-box approach to romance. Jared rewinds his tireless desire to make an impact with film making back to his brother’s tragic murder in 2009. He graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a B.A. in Film Making and Theatre in early 2013. Other awards include: 2012 Boise State Film Festival Winner; 38th Student Academy Awards Semi-Finalist.
