Director Biography - Jesse Boyle

Jesse Boyle, 27, is an Australian born filmmaker with bases out of Sydney and Los Angeles. Mostly recognised as an International touring artist with international band Chase Atlantic, his music career has taken him on multiple world tours. This, combined with a far-from-certain upbringing has given Jesse a front row experience of the human condition in every walk of life.

His love and obsession with film and writing has led him to set off on a new journey of filmmaking, starting with this Debut short film 'You Are The Ocean'. Shot just before embarking on a current American Headline Tour, it was edited between shows - backstage of sold out venues and high-octane performances.

Feeling like he has more to give and more to express, Jesse looks forward to making his follow-up film concepts - and looks to create films that will make audiences stop, think, and contemplate the nature of their own perspectives. Even if it is just for a moment.
