Hey, I'm Aaron!
Aaron Daniel Jacob is a moviemaker, film composer, and a seasoned session singer. A San Fernando Valley native, he participated in several musical theatre and improv groups in high school, including Cal State University Northridge's prestigious Teenage Drama Workshop, before turning his attention to Film Production at New York University. After two years in New York, he transferred to Chapman University where he finished his degree in Screenwriting.
He's written, directed, and produced several short films ranging in genre that have gone on to moderate acclaim. His horror-comedy short film "Riley" was screened at the Burbank International Film Festival®, where it was nominated for Best Horror Short and Best Leading Actress for frequent collaborator and close friend Bex Taylor-Klaus (Scream the Series, The Killing, Arrow). His major influences are the films of Steven Spielberg, James Wan, Christopher Nolan, and Robert Zemeckis.
Professionally, he's interned and collaborated in feature film development with award-winning animation producers Penney Finkelman Cox and Sandra Rabins. His voice credit as a singer appears on several Disney Channel® shows, such as Phineas and Ferb, Milo Murphy's Law, Sofia the First, among others. In addition, he works as a composer's assistant for Emmy® Award nominated television composer, song producer, and father Danny Jacob, doing music editing and vocal tuning. He also offers his talents as a composer for short films, influenced by the works of Hans Zimmer, John Williams, and Alan Silvestri. He also draws heavily from the music his father and mother (Grammy® Award nominated music producer and supervisor Marylata Elton) brought him up on: a healthy dose of classic rock, funk, soul, and classical pieces.
He currently resides in Los Angeles, where he is developing several projects for feature film, short film, and other transmedia properties. He is an avid collaborator, with personal and professional ties on both U.S. coasts.
