First, moving pictures, i.e. film and video:
Everything below was produced, directed, and written by me, Jean-Paul Tremblay, including trailers for my feature-length film, comedy shorts, music videos, and news segments.
Enjoy the trailer to my 2014 feature-film directorial debut Wildlife, an 85-minute motion picture ensemble comedy.
It’s a highly quirky and highly insincere microbudget road trip movie about Hollywood formulas and Hollywood clichés, starring an ensemble cast in a variety of locations, including Damian Lanigan, with whom I also produced the initial 22-minute pilot of his Jimmy Fallon- and NBC-funded TV series pilot, Sharing (2015).
The score and soundtrack is comprised of roughly 70+ minutes of exceptional, thrilling new music from Alessio Natalizia of Not Waving and Walls (Kompakt Records) fame.
Currently seeking distribution.
This is the edited, non-interactive version of the original pilot for an amazing new interactive video series produced for Fusion, The Split Show. It shows the ways in which audiences watch news solely informed by their own biases and perceptions and the wider culture’s preconceived narratives. This episode discusses immigration.
Please check out the awesome interactive version, though, if you like this preview here. It’s well worth your time.
In the second episode of The Split Show, our two faux-news shows, The Everyday Show and Freedom News, take a look at spying, the NSA, Edward Snowden and a safer society. (Could iPhones have killed Hitler? “Absolutely, if we just let them,” says Sir Simon Kingsley-Stott.) Pick a side…or don’t. With The Split Show, you don’t have to.

Produced as part of the Jordan Carlos-starring AOL series below, this segment in particular was a shining star, getting a ton of links and generating over 200,000 YouTube views.
This was way back in 2007, before smart phones even existed. I figure, after what I call “mobile inflation,” those 200,000 views should translate to, what, 20 million views, right? (Ha, or not.)

A TV news segment for Fusion’s AMERICA with Jorge Ramos featuring Felix Salmon.
In an era of Snapchat, it’s hard to believe there was once a time where voting and discussing politics was mostly done in private. Now, with social media, political stories are popping up every day that go way beyond a simple policy discussion.
We just literalized that for this on-air segment, is all. Vertical video and everything.
A short film, commissioned by Vanity Fair and editor Graydon Carter, starring Mike Daisey of “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs” fame.
A mockumentary depicting the misadventures and existential malaise of Vanity Fair magazine’s interns.
A time-lapse documentation of a cold and desolate road trip across the United States.
Unlike most boring time-lapse playbacks, this features an innovative little mapping tool so you always know where each visual moment transpired.
Features some examplary original music from the soundtrack to my debut feature film, Wildlife, by Alessio Natalizia of Not Waving and Walls (Kompakt Records, Berlin) fame.
First-ever film I made, ever. Premiered at Resfest Digital Film Festival alongside a music videos by Michel Gondry and Chris Cunningham.
Animated with actual 16mm film and edited on one of those old-fashioned Steenbecks at Harvard University. And yes, I’m aware analog film is in no way digital. (They however were not, apparently.)
The music is muffled here, and I need to re-convert and re-compress this whole thing, but it was more or less me trying to sound like Photek or Squarepusher or something – in 1997, way before dubstep ever existed.
