Jason L Pollard

Jason Pollard’s introduction to film began at an early age through his parents. His mother, Glenda’s love for film exposed Jason to a variety of genres such as American and French classics, blaxploitation and independent cinema. Jason would often accompany his father, acclaimed film producer/editor Sam Pollard, to the editing room and watch as his father magically turned strips of celluloid into complex and wonderful stories.

As a result of their influence, Jason studied film at New York University. In 2007 he co-edited the critically acclaimed PETE SEEGER: THE POWER OF SONG, which was nominated for the Motion Picture Producer of the Year Award and received the Christopher Award in 2009, as well as premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. Jason has collaborated with his father, Sam, for the History Channel’s documentary BLACK PREACHERS (2005). He edited a short narrativeGOD’S HAND (2004), which was an official Tribeca Film Festival selection in the urban short narrative category.

Jason has received a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts in Film & Television and a Masters in Cinema Studies, both from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. He is completing his first project as a producer on the short film, THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GUMMY BEARS.

Jason currently resides in New Jersey with his wife, Nicole.
