Jared Masters, President

Company Profile

Jared Lee Masters (born August 7, 1986) is an American independent motion picture producer, actor, writer, director and composer. He is founder and president of the Hollywood-based production company, Frolic Pictures, and has fathered several critically-acclaimed and award-winning feature films, including Slink (2013), After School Massacre (2014) and Punkettes (2014).

Jared Masters was born in Atlanta, GA, but his father’s stint in the Army (and, later, his law practice) kept the family of six moving to various cities across the globe (including Kansas City, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, and Germany). He attended public and private schools in Richmond, VA. His interest in filmmaking began at age 14, when he directed and edited skateboarding videos and sold them to schoolmates. At 15, he taught himself classical piano, and later composed music for some of his films.

Masters joined the Screen Actors Guild in 2007 and moved to New York City, where he landed minor acting roles in Union films and television. While living in New York he directed The Umbrella and the documentary Meet the Freaks at Dreamland. In 2010, Masters moved to Venice Beach, California, and made his first full-length feature film: Climb It, Tarzan! (2011), one of the few films to feature an all-female cast.

Masters was nominated for two EOTM Awards for his feature film Slink: Best Director in a Horror Film and Best Scream Film. The EOTM Awards show was held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California, on August 4, 2013. Masters won the 2013 EOTM Award for Best Horror Film for Slink. His film Teachers’ Day was an Official Selection of the 2014 Shockfest and Mockfest Film Festivals at Raleigh Studious in Hollywood, and was nominated for the Zelig Award, the highest honor from Mockfest. Actress Dawna Lee Heising won Best Actress at Mockfest for her performance in the film. On August 10th, 2014, Masters’ film Punkettes was awarded Festival Favorite at the Galactic Film Festival at the Frida Cinema in Santa Ana, California.

Some of Masters’ trademarks: retro themes, female empowerment, fetishism, burlesque as an art form, voyeurism, society’s underbelly, carnival and circus themes, and homages to 80’s slashers and B movies of the 1960s.
