Hey guys, what’s up!
My name is Jon Truei. I’m a New York City-based filmmaker.
I was technically born in Indiana, but I grew up in New Jersey and that’s where I tell everyone I’m from.
I decided I wanted to make movies when I was about 8 or 9. I spent most of my teen years (in between visits to the Principal’s office) running wild in the streets of South Jersey making camcorder films about monsters, aliens and kung fu with my friends. I eventually ended up attending film school at NYU, and I’ve been in New York ever since.
My movies are usually still about monsters, aliens and kung fu.
I'm a huge 90s kid, and I watch a lot of cartoons, anime and movies by Steven Spielberg. I like to think of my creative style as camp/genre escapism, but don't worry if that's not your thing. I probably like the movies you're watching too.
I’ve accumulated a pretty solid pile of projects over the years, and I've been lucky enough to work with more talented people than I can count. You can check out some of my work HERE.
A good handful of websites have been kind enough to write about some of my projects too, and if you want to read any of those articles, I've collected them HERE.
SEE YOU ALL WHEN I RULE THE WORLD!
