Directorial and other works Edit
In 1994 entrepreneur Jeffrey Seder asked him to direct In Deeper, a feature length docudrama that celebrated crime-fighting local citizens, as part of Mayor Ed Rendell's 'Heroes of the Streets' campaign in Philadelphia. In Deeper was awarded the 1996 Intercom Silver Plaque for best Direction. During location shooting he and Seder had conceived the idea of a film-production themed educational non-profit to serve Philadelphia's inner city and migrant youth populations. Jared moved to Philadelphia and became Creative Director of the Big Picture Alliance (BPA) for the next 15 years; writing program curricula and actively supervising over 3000 students and producing over 250 student films.
Jared personally directed 30 films, garnering awards from Cine Eagle, Intercom, and the Chicago International Film Festival. During this time Jared co-founded the independent film production company “Lost Dog Productions” which produced films for social service and cultural nonprofits, including Smarty Jones - A Pennsylvania Champion for the state of Pennsylvania; and hosted “Philly Live”, an interview talk show series. From 2004 to 2007 he was Senior Lecturer at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where he taught a course in Acting and Directing for Film.
After leaving BPA he became a member of Atlanta’s Fine Arts Workshop (FAWS) where he studied under Michael David; and had a one man show at Atlanta's nationally known Lowe gallery in November and December 2012. A gallery book ‘Dazhengzhao’ and a photo art book “Little Jewel and Summer Girl” were published in conjunction with this show. In the past year he produced and directed two short personal films, “CEM - a Life in Art” and ‘Dazhengzhao – the 1000 Year Old Village’. Jared and his wife, the Chinese classical dancer Yu Wei, live in Philadelphia and have a summer home on Monhegan Island, Maine.
Martin died from pancreatic cancer on May 24, 2017.
