Director Biography - John Wu

John began acting at the age of 20 after flunking everything else in college (i.e., computer science, calculus, etc.) except for a theatre appreciation class, which eventually led to enrolling in a summer acting program in NYC. He’s since appeared in speaking roles on The Sopranos, Fringe, Mercy, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, and The Onion News Network. John has completed the two-year Meisner program at The William Esper Studio and has since took it upon himself to learn how to use a camera, edit, surround himself with other artists and create his own work instead of waiting around for opportunities. Which is good because he has no other skills that would help him in a life or death situation except, perhaps, hoarding.

Director Statement

Jorey is the result of themes recurring in my life regarding the importance of authenticity. The opening scene, with its bright, garish colors and the undertone of sexy jazz (or in this case, what Jimmy's idea of sexy jazz is) highlights the fantasy world that men have about the implications of seduction and what that means in a world where people mistakenly believe in the power of deceitful personas.

All that comes crashing down when Darlene discovers a text exposing Jimmy for the fraud that he is. True, some may believe that "all he did was use a name that wasn't his", but how is she to know how far down the rabbit hole goes? But it is only this exposure that brings about Jimmy's humanity, and how different he truly is from his friend Pete who has no qualms about racking up notches under his belt.

Although Jimmy's eventual confession to Darlene was messy and lacking in any sort of grace, it signals the start of something real even if it doesn't lead to anything romantic between the two.
