Jason Eisener is a multi-talented artist. He has worked as a director and an editor, famous for his Indie movies. The director is basically from Canada. His style of filmmaking is unique- high concept work, distinctive special effects, and color use. His direction style is inspired by the 80’s style of filmmaking.
The 33-year-old director dreamt of making movies ever since he was a high school student.
His film career started in around 2005 when he co-wrote and co-directed the movie, The Teeth Beneath, with Zach Tovey. The movie was of the horror genre.
His love for horror movies continued and he went on to direct the movie, ‘Grindhouse’, in 2007. However, he only directed part of the film, “Hobo with a Shotgun”. This was because, there was a contest which
started, in which the contestants had to make a fake movie trailer. Eisener, along with his long-time friend
, made the trailer of “Hobo with a Shotgun”. The clip went viral on the net, and he won the contest. Later, in 2011, he made a full-length movie on this trailer with Rutger Hauer in the lead. Overall, the movie received good reviews.
The writer-director made a short film, ‘Treevenge’, in 2008. The star cast of the film had the following names: Sarah E. Dunsworth, Jonathan Torres, and Molly Dunsworth.
In the 2012 release ABCs of Death, Eisener directed one of the 26 different chapters of the film- Y is for Youngbuck.
His most memorable work is the V/H/S/2. The horror flick is a collection of found-footage of shorts. Jason directed the Slumber Party Alien Abduction part.
He was part of a documentary, Rewind This! in 2013. It was about the impact of Video Home System (VHS) on the film industry.
Eisener was the executive producer of Turbo Kid, a 2015 action-comedy release.
