Jason Leal is a filmmaker based in Houston, Texas, the energy capital of the world. His interest in film comes in both documentaries and narrative works, and he's currently developing a multi-tiered project about the historic oil industry event known as "Spindletop" that took place in Texas in 1901. His work has earned him multiple awards, including the Texas Proud Award at the Boomtown Film and Music Festival for his short film, A Mild Skirmish. Also, he's the recipient of two grants from the Houston Arts Alliance for his dedication to highlighting the Bayou City through the art of film. The native Houstonian's first foray into filmmaking came as a production assistant in 2013 on various projects in Southeast Texas. Since then, he's gone on to write, produce, and direct three short films of his own, which have been screened at the Houston Latino Film Festival and the Boomtown Film and Music Festival in Beaumont, Texas. He's also active in Houston's filmmaking community, often attending screenings of peers' projects and volunteering at film festivals. After earning a Marketing degree at the University of Houston, Jason enjoyed a successful career in sales and marketing before making the switch to learning the craft and business of making films.
