Clayton Andrew Jackson, made in the small town of Hanover, Indiana, is an intensely driven and endlessly motivated film-maker. His passion for directing stems from his reenactments of classic motion pictures as a child and making short movies as a teenager.
In 2010, he became the Co-President of a student media production organization called Dark Hound Productions. He graduated from Indiana University with a major in Telecommunications Production & Design, Industry & Management and a Minor in Sociology. Midway through his degree, he found his true calling and filmmaking became his life’s main focus.
His major influences include Quentin Tarantino, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and, in particular, Martin Scorsese.
His goal as a film director is to help instigate a mass return to true visual craft and story as the center of the cinematic art form.
Clayton now lives and works in Bloomington, Indiana.
