The First Hope is a coming of age story about a young boy who watches Luke and Leia’s kiss in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and develops an inappropriate crush of his own — continues to receive accolades at film festivals across the world. The First Hope won the Student Short Grand Jury Prize at the 2013 Dallas International Film Festival.
Enhanced features Jamie Rothschild, a comedian who receives a call from his estranged sister. He is forced to confront the surprisingly emotional decision to get ‘Enhanced.’ As Jeremy described in his Director's Notes: "Making this movie has inspired a lot of conversations. Conversations about singularity; about medicine; about corporatism and advertising; about the aesthetics of the human body. But all of these conversations soon gave way for a story that to me was personal, immediate and cinematic. The tense but vital relationship between a brother and a sister. Fear of dying. Fear of change. How self-loathing and grief are actually essential parts of the human experience. And how a comedian can (better than anyone) expose the darker, unshakable truths of what it means to be human."
He is currently developing his feature film debut, THE MODERN AGE. He lives in Los Angeles where he continues to write and direct both narrative and documentary film.
