Jack Dorfman is a director, photographer, editor, & producer. He got his start making films at age 8 by taking his parents' home camcorder and accidentally taping over all their home movies. If you want to get on his good side, bring up musicals, Kieslowski, or Talking Heads. If you want to get on his bad side, give him some ketchup. He has directed numerous music videos for artists such as Farid Audee, Marlena Rose, and Closegood. He’s directed and edited numerous short films that have gone on to be featured in Denver Film Festival, Cannes Short Film Festival, Katra Film Series, and more. He is currently directing a short film adaptation of the NY Times Critics' Pick play Stalking the Bogeyman. The production company he founded, Shift23 Media, is designed to make art the most accessible form of education through free online classes and filmmaking resources.
