Jason Charnick

Director / Producer
Upstart Film Collective

Jason is a native of the Bronx, New York and a 20+ year veteran of the entertainment industry. Moving to Los Angeles in 1999, he cut his teeth in the post department on the early James Franco film, At Any Cost. In 2002, he partnered up with writer/director Peter Sullivan (Secret Obsession, Fatal Affair) to produce the wildly successful short film, Night Surf, one in a long line of Stephen King’s Dollar Baby film projects. 

In 2004, he was responsible for creating stop-motion post workflows for the popular TV show Robot Chicken. Working in branding and promotions since 2006, he’s been involved with on such blockbusters as The A-TeamCabin In The Woods, and Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, as well as highly-rated TV shows such as Dollhouse & The Voice

Never to stray far from his indie film roots, he spent time during these projects to write and direct his own shorts, as well as his debut feature, Getting Over, which had its World Premiere at SXSW 2018, and won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at that year’s Indigo Moon Film Festival in Fayetteville, NC.

Getting Over is available now on all major streaming platforms.
