Jason Charnick is a native of the Bronx, New York and a 25+ year veteran of the entertainment industry. Moving to Los Angeles in 1999, he cut his teeth in the post department on the early James Franco film, AT ANY COST. In 2002, he partnered up with writer/director Peter Sullivan (SECRET OBSESSION, FATAL AFFAIR) to produce the wildly successful short film, NIGHT SURF, one in a long line of Stephen King’s Dollar Baby film projects.
In 2004, he was responsible for creating stop-motion post workflows for the popular TV show ROBOT CHICKEN. Working in branding and promotions since 2006, he’s been involved with such recent blockbusters as THE BATMAN, TOP GUN: MAVERICK, NOPE and BULLET TRAIN as well as highly-rated TV shows such as THE VOICE and THE PROBLEM WITH JON STEWART. Jason has also post supervised main title sequences for multiple films with Happy Madison Productions including GROWN UPS 1 & 2, YOU DON’T MESS WITH THE ZOHAN and CLICK.
Never to stray far from his indie roots, he spent time during these blockbusters to write and direct his own shorts, as well as his debut feature, GETTING OVER, which had its World Premiere at SXSW 2018. It also won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at that year’s Indigo Moon Film Festival in Fayetteville, NC and is in the top one-percent of independent films released in the last five years to make a profit.
More recently, Jason has already had multiple successful web3 film projects including THE 29 PALMS COLLECTION and LONG BEACH LIFTED, an unofficial, yet fully-licensed collab with the legendary hip-hop artist and Long Beach native, Snoop Dogg. Jason is committed to helping create sustainable careers for filmmakers and every project he develops, especially THE ABSENCE IS ALWAYS PRESENT, is dedicated to the memory of his daughter Shelby.
