As an award-winning young filmmaker, Jason Eberly has directed a feature film and over a dozen narrative short films throughout the course of his budding career. Six of these films have appeared in over thirty international festivals, winning various awards and receiving good press. In 2009 Jason’s feature film debut, “Nero Bloom: Private Eye,” was screened at an independent theater for two months and won Best Student Feature at the Cinema City Film Festival.

In 2012, Jason directed a high budget short film titled “Niña Del Tango.” Following premiers in Los Angeles and New York City, the film found success in the festival circuit, which included screenings at two Oscar-qualifying festivals and The Consulate General of Argentina in New York. He subsequently received $20,000 in private funding for feature development based on the short film. In 2016, Jason co-wrote and produced an ambitious narrative project based in Israel (lived in Jerusalem for a month during production), produced and directed a commercial featuring Rainn Wilson, and became the contractual video editor for the Costume Designers Guild for various online and ceremonial content.

Jason currently resides in Los Angeles, developing and creating projects that integrate his various passions.
