Jesse Selwyn / Executive Producer & Director



Jesse is an award-winning director, producer, editor, musician, and writer. A graduate of NYU Film/TV, he works in Los Angeles creating content for television and digital platforms and the evolving crossover between the two.

After working as a broadcast segment director, Jesse applied his creative skills toward new media trends and formed partnerships with agencies and brands that were also moving forward with online advertising and entertainment. He quickly established himself as a go-to creator and production provider for these clients, often collaborating in multiple capacities.

Jesse has directed top talent including Joel McHale, Jim Parsons, Natalie Portman, Zoe Saldana, Nick Lachey, Zack Snyder (director), and Wayne Brady on both scripted campaigns and public service pieces. His work also includes a series of broadcast commercials, multiple music videos for Comedy Central Studios, Save-Our-Schools spots for Southern California public school systems, and a road-trip campaign for Kodak.





Other recent work includes brand-driven entertainment and original spots and programming for Samsung, Nintendo, Verizon, Coffee-mate, Frito-Lay, Lenovo, ID PR, Microsoft, Purina, Discovery Channel / The Science Channel, NetGear, Ford Mustang, Fremantle Media, SABMiller, and G4TV, among others.

With Cutaway, Jesse has assembled a collective of professionals who understand emerging trends and technology, and share a common passion for creative problem-solving, from initial ideation through final distribution. Together, they aim to think outside the traditional production and agency models that have ruled the space for decades. The result is compelling content that requires a fraction of the workforce and none of the red tape of larger companies.
