Hey, I'm Jaret!

New York, New York

Jaret Martino, a New York native, began his acting career at age six in theatre and has gone on to appear in various television productions, including The Middle,Law and Order SVU, 30 Rock, Modern Family, and Glee.  Today his journey as an artist includes writing and producing short and feature films.
 
Jaret Martino Productions credits include Driven The Documentary, an empowering film about women. It has played at film festivals worldwide and received the support of companies such as Microsoft and Step Up!.  Ladybug, an eleven minute short, was featured at The Vail Film Festival 2015, and also screened in the Netflix Horror Anthology.  Shortly after that success, Jaret was approached to produce a comedy pilot, Bellz Angels, to be pitched to cable and major networks. 
 
Recently JMP signed a Distibution deal for award winning films Driven and Essential Tremors.  It’s a romantic comedy about two special needs people who find love. 

 

Stronger Than Pretty is a Jaret Martino Productions Narrative Feature Film Screenplay. His mission with telling this story is to give back to those who do so much to inspire others: first and foremost his mom, plus the women who face adversity and find ways to overcome it.

 

Inner Warrior is a docu series that was inpsired by the vulnerabilty of realizing Stronger Than Pretty. Navigating several diverse and inspiring stories of survival, we meet the men and women who faced the seemingly impossible but chose strength to define their future. These stories will provide an intimate look into the life of abuse, physical and emotional paralysis, PTSD, alcoholism, eating disorders, prejudice, depression, loss and more. Now is the time for all our voices to be heard, to end the silence and start telling our stories as they should be told: unapologetically, without shame and openly.
