Book & Lyrics
Jeffrey Jackson began his career in the world of advertising, where he founded his own agency and went on to write and direct award-winning commercials and video content for nationally known clients such as Sony, Novartis and Western Union. He wrote and directed the acclaimed short film, Our First Fight, which toured film festivals around the world. His feature-length screenplay, White Collared, won Best Screenplay at the Santa Barbara Film Festival and was acquired by Sundance-winning film producers Filbert Steps.
Creating the book and lyrics for Frankenstein was his first work for the stage. His second play, TWO POINT OH, a dark comedy that presaged futuristic tech fare like Black Mirror, debuted in Detroit where the Free Press called it “compelling,” “gripping,” and “one of the most thought-provoking plays of the season.” In its New York debut, TWO POINT OH received unanimously positive reviews and was a “Critic’s Pick” in The New York Times, which praised it as “smart, provocative, and funny.”
Most recently, Jeff wrote, directed and produced the groundbreaking hybrid video game/live-action movie Daemon 9. It was universally praised by players and press alike and The Horror Network hailed it as “an astonishing achievement.”
Jeff has also directed several theatrical productions in the New York area including the NYMF Festival winner Love in the Middle Ages and an acclaimed regional production of the musical Ragtime.
