I have known Jaydin for three years and I am consistently impressed with not only his capabilities as a filmmaker and media producer, but with his seemingly ceaseless enthusiasm for his work
as a Littleglobe team member. Jaydin first started working with us as a high school
senior, and we immediately saw him as a potential asset to our organization because of
his willingness and eagerness to learn. He joined our team as a junior filmmaker,
helping out on film projects as needed, and as we started our Littleglobe TV project, he
became an integral member of our team. He contributes content and ideas to each
episode, but also has helped to develop our technological capacities in terms of
creating a web-based tv show. He helps set up our production studio, and has made it
possible for us to reach thousands of audience members when we stream our episodes.
This has been invaluable to us as an organization.
Jaydin is a remarkable young man. He continually contributes humorous and poignant
stories to Littleglobe TV. He has invited other young people to participate in our
episodes, and he is always eager to help us with anything we ask him to do, all while
being a full-time film student at UNM. He often would put in full work days with us, go
home and take a final exam, and then come back to continue helping us. He is
dedicated, reliable, and most importantly, a personable, warm and compassionate
young man. We are lucky to have Jaydin as part of our team
Hello! I'm in MediaWorks. I can't upload things because it says I'm on the free plan even though I'm part of the class, so I'm wondering if maybe I didn't finish my profile, so I'm adding stuff!
Documentary Producer, Writer, Director
If I started at the beginning I’d just confuse you, so I’ll tell you about right now.
In the broadest sense of the world I'm a storyteller. I produce write, shoot and edit short films, corporate promos, and little stories about people, places, and things, in New York City.
I also rock out like a bastard with my band Thee Shambels and I've just finished a short film based on my music.
I joined the Masters in Fine Arts program Hunter College in New York , where I'm enrolled in the Integrated Media Arts course making documentaries. I suppose it's rooted in my career in newspapers, but I'm still drawn to everyday drama. My films record he small triumphs and calamities that befall real people in the world around me. Stories that are often ignored, and mistaken for footnotes in our lives. In selecting stories, I look for open ended third acts - tales that are not finished in the telling.
I’ve been a bartender, a barista, a photojournalist, a stage manager and an usher in the theatre. I’ve put up drywall and sold air conditioners.. It’s a lot I know, sometimes I wake up and wonder who I am and what I’m supposed to be today. But that’s why they invented coffee.
