Director Biography - Justin Bernard Head

As a kid, Justin Head grew up watching all kind of movies. However, it was the Universal Studios monster movies such as Dracula and Frankenstein that he would grow to love. The sense of atmosphere and visual style would prove a big influence on his work. His first exposure to filmmaking was taking the Universal Studios backlot tour when he was 9 years old. From then on, he realized he wanted to go into filmmaking. As a teen, he started playing around with a MiniDV camera. He made one short film after the other, camera to camera, honing his craft for horror films as he went along. He would write, direct, edit, and a later point in time do the makeup effects for some of his films.
While he film classes at Saddleback College from 2008-13. However, he would produce his biggest output of films upon enrolling at the Art Institute in 2013. He's directed eight short films (mostly horror films), each one more disturbing than the last. These include Midnight Snack, D-Date, Lilith, A Dog to Kill For, A Thief and a Cop, Grave Mistake, and most recently his senior thesis Renaissance. All have been produced through his production banner Slasher Films which specializes in retro style horror/exploitation films. His films generally feature sadistic violence, bizarre characters, and a dark sense of humor. Justin has also worked on several short films at Ai as a grip and Special Effects Makeup Artist creating knife wounds, eye gouging, throat slitting, etc.
In 2015, he will graduate from the Art Institute of Orange County with a Bachelors of Science in Digital Film and Video Production and build funds to make the big move to Los Angeles.
