Director Biography - Jordan Cann

Jordan Cann was born on October 3rd to professional artist, Malcolm and R.N. Sandra Cann. He was raised on the rough streets of Queens, NY and it was not until the age of 7 when he relocated to Hampton, VA, where he discovered his first talent, dance. He began watching all the legends, such as Michael Jackson, James Brown, Sammie Davis Jr. and Usher to tune his style. He choreographed his first original piece, ''Shackles'' at the age of 12. He later went on to study ballet, jazz, Latin, African and ballroom, but he could not deny his love for hip-hop. When he wasn't dancing he was excelling in the martial arts and gymnastics. Jordan was later introduced to acting when he was given the lead role in a church play. After high school he decided to take his talents to Hollywood. There he started as a professional dancer working with artist such as Will.I.Am, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, 50 Cent, Celine Dion and more while landing commercials for companies such as Dreamworks, Axe, Verizon , Little Caesars, and Nickelodeon. His martial arts came in handy where it landed him a small role in the movie, "Straight Outta Compton." After working on large sets and seeing how things were done a passion for filmmaking was emerging. Jordan decided to enroll in the Los Angeles Film school where he earned his degree, specializing in editing, writing, and directing. Since then he has produced several award winning films for his production company, J&S Film Productions which he started with his good friend that he used to dance alongside with. He is currently bi-coastal between Atlanta and Los Angeles producing films and acting.
