Jesse Vogelaar

Jesse debuted as a baby on a small farm in Cambridge, Aotearoa/New Zealand to two newly arrived Dutch immigrants. He spent much of his childhood charting small islands and playing competitive marbles in the North Island. At age 8 he dialled the first production company he found in the phone book to pitch an epic sci-fi trilogy. The deal fell through and the story was long lost on a corrupted floppy disk. He later grew taller and queerer and picked up a camera to recreate this dream ever since.

Vowing to never lose anything ever again, he has documented and archived every shower thought and life altering moment meticulously. In 2016 his short film, "You Lose" - went viral and Junkee called it, "Australia's Greatest Work of Art". It was featured by NOWNESS and made it to France, featured on L'Oeil de Links on CANAL+. Since then he has adjusted to a life of hyperbole and "ha-ha" funny little movies.

He directed the Screen Australia and ABC funded comedy series, "Ruby Rai, P.I.", created by Vidya Rajan. His most recent short, "Room for One More", was nominated for best comedy at Palm Springs Shortfest 2023 and continued to play at festivals like PÖFF, Flickerfest, Aesthetica and Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur. His previous short "Mark Targets", premiered at Sydney Film Festival and was acquired by SBS for VOD streaming. He has directed commercials and content for brands like Museum's Victoria, Lenovo, Specsavers and music videos for labels like Future Classic and Mushroom Group.
