Jacob has always had a lifetime love for filmmaking, and before deciding to come to SAIT, he was taking a Bachelors of Communications and Media Studies at U of C. Throughout his time here in the FVP program, he feels like he understands how to achieve his ambitions for filmmaking much better, and has been taught to explore different genres a lot more, as well as branching out in his writing. He can see himself pursuing roles such as Producer and Director, as well as pursuing roles in the AD Department, with his main career goal being to produce a film in the future. After he graduates, Jacob plans on traveling Europe, and then gaining some experience on film sets and finding work within the industry.
Jacob’s favourite films are The Departed (2006), Moonrise Kingdom (2012), and Coraline (2009), with his favourite director being Edgar Wright. He also idolizes Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg.
