Jason McGuire - Producer

A life-time lover of film, he found his desire to become a filmmaker while rotting in a communications class in Estero, Florida. He enrolled in the Art Institute of Tampa and met the founding members of Elderhouse Productions. Three years later, he completed his BFA in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production. After working jobs that paid the bills but lacked in thrills, he quit his job and moved to Austin. Living there already, were his friends and colleagues from Elderhouse Productions. With the support of his friends and family, he began to focus on producing short films. One of his shorts, Whiskey & A Water won second place in the 2015 Water, Texas: What's Your Story? film competition.
