Writer/Director Jared Nelson presents Canon's Project Imagina10n Award Winning Short Film


A passionate and tireless Writer/Director, Jared Nelson graduated with a B.A. in Filmmaking and Theatre in early 2013 from the University of California Riverside. 'Chucked' is his sixth short film. Awards from his other work include: 2012 Boise State Film Festival Winner; 38th Student Academy Awards Semi-Finalist. In his film 'Chucked,' a book return shaped like a robot falls in love with a human girl.

"The mood photo I chose originally struck me with a feeling of romance. This man and woman are sharing a great intimate moment and it seems they're the only two people in the world. I wanted to mirror this feeling with our robot book return "Chuck" and the "Girl" character.  Like many humans, his greatest obstacle is to show his heart and show how it feels." 

Jared's other work includes Sonia, Paint Me an Expression, the webseries First Love, The Digital Specs, and Done the Impossible: The Fans' Tale of 'Firefly' and 'Serenity'.
