Jesse Dylan isn't the first director to make the jump from music videos to feature films, but he's certainly one of the most creative and successful. He is also a prolific director at the forefront of the commercial production field. Combine these talents with his career as a photographer, and you have a portrait of an artist fluent in both the message and the medium.
Jesse began his career directing music videos for a diverse collection of groundbreaking artists that include Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, and Lenny Kravitz. His most recent work includes music videos for Nelly Furtado and The Eels. Working with the Black Eyed Peas on an Internet project for Snickers, Jesse forged a bond with will.i.am, who recently sought his services again to collaborate on a project for Barack Obama. The result, a song/video/speech, the Yes We Can Song, which started out virally online and has been seen by tens of millions of viewers since its debut in February 2008. In addition, it has most recently won an Emmy Award. For more information please visit http://www.apbspeakers.com.
