Jack Fessenden, recently cited as one of "11 Filmmakers 30 or Under You Need to Know" (Indiewire, June 2017) at age 17, is a filmmaker based in New York City. He finished his first feature film, Stray Bullets, during his sophomore year in High School. The film premiered at the Oldenburg International Film Festival in September 2016 and went on to be distributed by Screen Media Films in a 12-city release that included New York and LA. Starring James Le Gros and Kevin Corrigan, Stray Bullets was heralded by the Hollywood Reporter as a "strikingly impressive...blazingly confident debut" and by Slant Magazine as "cing] a stock scenario to its primal essence, informing genre blood sport with pulp transcendentalism." In addition to directing, writing, editing, and starring in the film, Jack also composed and performed its score, which is available on Lakeshore Records. Jack also plays in and produces for his punk rock band, "HOLIDAY," who have released three EPs and a studio album on iTunes and Spotify.
