Jerry is an established screenplay and film writer, published poet and is currently authoring his autobiography.
TRUEHEART and LOST SOULS are two of Jerry’s feature length screenplays in the sci-fi and horror/thriller genres respectively.
He has also written four short films, which have screened in festivals around the world.
Jerry is an award-winning producer with three feature films, six short films and two music videos under his belt.
His features include, TAMING TAMMY, (a twist on Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew), UNINVITED (a horror/western starring iconic western actor Jack Elam), and ELVIS, MOZART & ME (a paranormal romantic comedy).
Adept at making a dollar out of 15 cents, Jerry is accustomed to wearing, all at the same time, many different creative and production hats. While primarily focusing on writing, producing and directing, Jerry has jumped in to assist with set decorating, wardrobe selection, scouting locations, sourcing props, and feeding the cast and crew.
Jerry has learned first-hand the art of creative editing. He is a natural born storyteller with a strong creative, thematic, and cinematic eye. A keen attention detail is one of his core editing strengths and he understands the editing process from a creative standpoint.
As a long-time veteran actor, writer and now director, Jerry instinctively knows when a scene, works, when it doesn't and how to fix it. His problem-solving skills and ability to think outside the box creates space to embellish and work with what has already been shot.
He believes that editing is the second half of the directing process and that editing has the capability of making or breaking a project. Jerry reveres the editing process almost as much as he does directing principal photography.Type your paragraph here.
