Jesse Rosen is a writer-director, actor and producer who hails from the home of the Boss. His interest in film can be traced back to the 8mm video camera he wielded at the tender age of 12. After graduating from Emerson College with a B.F.A. in writing, Jesse wrote, directed and accidentally starred in his first feature film, “The Art of Being Straight,” which was released theatrically and on DVD via Regent Releasing. The film received positive reviews in the NY Times, Variety, and went on to win several awards. His second feature as writer-director, “The Jazz Funeral,” stars James Morrison (“24,”), Bobby Campo (“The Final Destination 3D”), Maiara Walsh (“Switched at Birth”) and Dee Wallace (“E.T.”). The film, which will be released on VOD in 2016, has won Grand Jury Prizes at Dances With Films and the Big Bear Int’l Film Festival. His next film is in the works.
