Award-winning American Film & TV Producer, Screenwriter, Director, Actor & Composer and Celebrity speaker
J.J. Abrams is a real communication genius and an internationally renowned multitasking creator, scriptwriter, director and producer of cinema and television. He is a real one-man band. Now a major player in Hollywood, he wrote and produced many unforgettable feature films before co-creating the television series Felicity. He also created Alias and co-created Lost, Fringe and Undercovers. He directed the films Mission: Impossible III and Star Trek and produced the film Cloverfield. He is the founder of Bad Robot Productions.
“J. J. Abrams’ name looms large on the big & small screen”
J.J. Abrams studied at Palisades Charter High School, Los Angeles, CA and then he attended the Sarah Lawrence College. The son of television producers, he spent his days in television studios, starting very early on his brilliant career as a scriptwriter. His first job in the movie business started when he was 16 when he wrote music for the film Nightbeast. While he began his career in the early 1990s scripting snoozy cinematic fare such as Regarding Henry, he hit his stride in TV with the collegiate dramedy, Felicity, and the spy serial, Alias. He has written all the musical scores of his television series, he sometimes even delves his hands in the grease of digital special effects and he’s also a talented keyboard player.
What he offers you
J.J. Abrams enjoys the status of a major pop-culture player and one serious multi-tasker. He has become what we could consider one of transmedia’s pioneers and probably even one of its leaders, since he is today, one of the creators whose creation on multiple media is visible to the greatest number. He beguiles audiences with a masterful use of suspense, plot reversals, and special effects in his creations and his presentations to live audiences are just as memorable. He has spoken at the prestigious events worldwide, including the TED conference in 2007. He is still the best example of someone who puts his ideas down on multiple media as a practitioner and not a theoretician.
How he presents
J.J. Abrams’ enthusiasm – for the construction of Kleenex boxes, for the quiet moments between shark attacks in Jaws, for today’s filmmaking technologies and above all for the potent mystery of an unopened package – is incredibly infectious. He beguiles audiences with a masterful use of suspense, plot reversals, and special effects in his creations and his humorous presentations to live audiences are just as memorable.
