Jesse Harley is a 16-time award winning filmmaker from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
He's been professionally editing everything under the sun for the past 20 years. With the rental of a shoulder-mount VHS camcorder at the age of 10, Jesse quickly fell in love with the art of filmmaking, and has doggedly pursued it ever since. Jesse has written and directed four funded short films, directed two television commercials, and has directed his first feature, 'Lure', which has won 4 awards, and is currently making the festival rounds. While he aims to create a film of every genre, he has a soft spot for oddball comedies, and character-driven suspense thrillers.
He can do no-handed cartwheels and backflips, and loves a good ghost story.
