Jonathan Kesselman

Jonathan Baruch Kesselman (he is Jewish), was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. He received his Bachelors degree from the University of Colorado, graduating Magna Cum Laude in Psychology. After college, Jon spent a miserable two years wasting away in the corporate world as an Information Systems Consultant before being accepted into graduate school at the University of Southern California School of Cinema/Television, from which he graduated in December of 2001.

While at USC, Jon's second semester short film, The Hebrew Hammer, went on to the semi-finals at the 2000 Austin Film festival, and was chosen and screened by the USC Archivists in a selection of ten of their favorite student shorts from the 1950's to the present. It was licensed by the website Neurotrash.com, and can now be viewed on the Internet site Hypnotic.com. While at USC, Jon also wrote, directed, edited, and produced a web serial for Doug Liman's Internet film site Nibblebox.com as well as wrote educational films for the James Stanfield Company in Santa Barbara, CA.

The Hebrew Hammer is Jon's first feature.
