ABOUT JAY IGNASZEWSKI
Jay came East after wandering off the honor farm at the Shirley Temple Black Home for the Cinematically Bewildered in Palm Springs. Having worked in the Film Industry for over 25 years on the West Coast, Jay came East seeking four seasons and the perfect ear of white corn. He has worked with George Lucas, Steven Speilberg, David Lynch and Mel Brooks, to name a few. His skill set includes editing (Emmy for co-editing the pilot for Twin Peaks), visual effects (producer VFX for Eraser, tests for Matrix and What Dreams May Come), sound (location and post - One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Black Stallion), camera (Panavision, Arriflex, Éclair, B&H) and he makes a mean Bolognese. Jay also teaches production courses at two local universities, sharing his vast reservoir of hearsay and misinformation with the upcoming generation of image-makers. Hoping to steer these impressionable youths to a better life path such as animal husbandry or fly tying. Jay now is seeking a crisp, brilliant sauvignon blanc to go with the corn.
