In the last few years, Jeremiah has crafted the aesthetic and dramatic styles of three highly rated TV series, been nominated for three Emmys, and had award winning films shown in festivals around the world.
He approaches his work as a creator, bringing intense focus, attention to subtlety, and rigorous story craft to each project.
Directing art films, commercials, and music videos informs his aesthetic, and his more than a decade in the TV doc world gives him a knack for compelling storytelling. In various roles, Jeremiah has taken many shows from initial concept to highly rated, multiple season series.
A brief history:
- After a decade as a DP – and two Emmy nominations – Jeremiah made his narrative directorial debut in 2009 with Small Collection, an unconventional short that won eight “best of fests” on the festival circuit (Sundance, Palm Springs, Cleveland, Woodstock, others).
- Soon after, he served as the originating series director of National Geographic’s Emmy-nominated Brain Games, which captivated viewers with its novel take on neuroscience, and has run for many seasons.
- Since then, he’s been the originating director on several acclaimed documentary series including the two-time Emmy winner, A Crime to Remember, a crime anthology that marries documentary interviews with lush, 60’s era, scripted drama.
- Along the way, he’s created numerous short form pieces, including music videos, commercials, and social impact films.
- More recently, he directed MTV’s groundbreaking scripted/doc hybrid series, One Bad Choice, and later developed, produced, and directed an ABC documentary special on Walt Disney.
- He is regularly sought after as a creative consultant, and is the co-creator of a proposed documentary series that explores the thriving market around stolen antiquities and is being developed with Revelations Entertainment.
Jeremiah was raised in Northern California, came to New York to study philosophy at Columbia University and stayed. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two sons.
