Jesse O’Brien is an independent filmmaker with a background in postproduction. He produced the Australian campaigns for several Walt Disney releases, including Alice in Wonderland, Up and Toy Story 3, and then wrote and directed his debut feature film Arrowhead, which was licensed to NBC Universal’s SyFy channel in 2015. He has since directed two television commercials for Disney and has a second feature in development. Jesse has a passion for popcorn cinema of the 70s and 80s, including the early work of Spielberg, John Carpenter and James Cameron. A love of these filmmakers, who embraced practical effects work, has given Jesse a desire to achieve dramatic naturalism in a world saturated by CGI.
