Experiencing Interruptions?

Mission Critical

Mission Critical is set in a science fiction future and tells the story of Davis, a pilot in a scrappy resistance military. Her fellow soldiers openly deride her, her commanding officers talk down to her, and her unit members undermine her. She’s internalized all this messaging that has led her to doubt herself during the most important mission the resistance has ever undertaken.

Director Biography - Jeffrey Jackson

Jeff Jackson was born and raised in Seattle, WA before moving to Oxnard, CA to attend Brooks Institute of Photography in their Feature Film and Video Program. He graduated in 2008 and worked for a TV production company for about a year before returning home to be with family following the death of his father. His life took him away from film for more than a decade, but he returned to it as a focus of his life with his short film, Mission Critical, fulfilling a life long dream of creating something he'd proud to submit to film festivals.
