While at USC, Jon's second semester short film, The Hebrew Hammer, went on to the semi-finals at the 2000 Austin Film festival, and was chosen and screened by the USC Archivists in a selection of ten of their favorite student shorts from the 1950's to the present. It was licensed by the website Neurotrash.com, and can now be viewed on the Internet site Hypnotic.com. While at USC, Jon also wrote, directed, edited, and produced a web serial for Doug Liman's Internet film site Nibblebox.com as well as wrote educational films for the James Stanfield Company in Santa Barbara, CA.
The Hebrew Hammer is Jon's first feature.
