Jesse helped Global Green put together an original and creative video that was showcased as a demonstration of the organization's summation of work. His fresh perspective allowed for a concise and strong messaging that allowed for the video to communicate strongly to Global Green's constituents. He is a very accommodating and thorough worker in making sure he is producing a quality video for his clients.
DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER - GLOBAL GREEN
Jesse was a fantastic director to work with, he was extremely well prepared, knew exactly what he wanted, and communicated it to me, the actors, and the rest of the crew in simple, easy to follow terms without hesitation or uncertainty.
Despite our meager budget and strict production schedule, under Jesse’s direction we consistently finished on time or slightly ahead of schedule and on budget. This is not to say this was Jesse’s only concern; he took time working with the actors and always sought out the most interesting, highest production value looking shots.
Jesse’s on set demeanor is wonderful too. He is friendly and approachable both during preproduction and on set and when he says he’ll get back to you on something, he actually gets back to you. And he treats all persons on set with respect and courtesy.
I would definitely recommend Jesse as a director.
DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY - I KNEW MY MURDERER
Jesse is a great person to work with. His positive attitude, problem solving skills, and ability to lead a group made every project we worked on a much easier process. He is creative, smart, and a very easy person to work with. I hope to work with Jesse again.
MANAGER OF POST PRODUCTION - DEEP UNDERCOVER
Jesse is a great guy to work with. Fun, pleasure and cares about his craft. He wrote several true crime scripts, and always dug deep to find a great angle to each story. He knows how to incorporate notes and can execute rewrites quickly. I hope to work with him again.
SHOWRUNNER - CORRUPT CRIMES
Jesse was a great AP to work with who anticipated the show's needs. He had a great grasp of story and help find impossible bites. He also assisted in the field and was an invaluable contributor. Can't recommend him more highly.
