About the Director: 

Born in Pittsburgh, PA to Richard and Patricia Green, his mother later remarried to Christopher Bender. At a young age, found escapism and release through creative means with movies and art. From his earliest recollection of film, such as The Wolf Man (1941), he began a lifelong love affair with the cinema which would ultimately lead to his dream of being a filmmaker himself. Having first been trained as an illustrator, he returned to school and decided no more denying his dream, and Graduated Pittsburgh Filmmakers in Early 2011, equipped with a Thesis Film entitled "Shade's Last Run", ready for the festival circuit. Jason has worked on several Independent films in both directing and writing, as well as pre, production and post production capacities. He has filmed several live bands and has also shot and edited a concert for the event Electrobelly, a Pittsburgh dance concert. He is currently working on his first feature script, as well as a shooting a pitch for a television pilot with co-conspirator Ben Anderson.
