Hey, I'm Jerell!

Los Angeles, California

 JERELL ROSALES is a talented Filipino-American film and television writer and director. His short films have garnered numerous awards and have played in over eighty (and counting) film festivals worldwide. He is the latest winner of the 2018 Humanitas Prize for his comedy script, FLIP.   


Jerell holds an MFA from UCLA in directing, where he was the rare exception with having two of his films win the Spotlight award (UCLA’s highest honors). His UCLA thesis film, THESE THINGS TAKE TIME, stars Zackary Arthur (The 5th Wave, Amazon’s Transparent, and Mom & Dad). Jerell has also directed Amy Smart (Just Friends, The Butterfly Effect), Tyler Alvarez (lead of Netflix’s American Vandal) and Lana Condor (star of Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before). 


His television directorial debut, HIGH SCHOOL LOVER, premiered on LIFETIME in February 2017. The made-for-TV movie stars François Arnaud (star of NBC’s Midnight Texas), Paulina Singer (Freeform’s Dead of Summer), and James Franco (127 Hours, The Disaster Artist). 


Jerell grew up as a “military brat,” living on bases as far away as Japan. He’s based in Los Angeles, where he teaches writing and directing classes for UCLA Extension.
