Aaron Daniel Jacob
Composer | Filmmaker | Creative
Aaron Daniel Jacob is a multitalented creative with experience as a composer, music editor, screenwriter, director, and singer. He brings a unique, creative perspective to whatever opportunity he's given. He considers himself a storyteller first.
Aaron is a composer, writer, director, and singer. He got his start in musical theater before shifting his focus to filmmaking in college, spending two years at NYU for Film Production and finishing his BA at Chapman in Screenwriting. He has written and directed several successful short films. Some highlights include the proof of concept short film Knight Watch starring Carolina Ravassa (Overwatch, Hispanglosaxon) and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Voltron, Hell Fest, Dumplin), Paralysis starring Amber Grace (Away) and Dom Fera (YouTube's DomincFear), and Riley starring Bex Taylor-Klaus and Vincent Martella (Phineas and Ferb, The Walking Dead, Everybody Hates Chris).
His work as a composer came naturally after growing up in a house with a television composer and music producer. He began composing scores for his own short films through high school. In college, he was asked to compose the scores for his colleagues' thesis films, many of which went on to festival acclaim. In the same year, Aaron received Craft Awards in Music for two NYU thesis films, Stevie's Aliens directed by Austin S. Harris, and Me, Myself, and Will directed by Will Thede. He continued to develop his compositional skills while working as a music editor on Disney TV Animation shows with his father. Aaron would contribute his own work to episodes of Milo Murphy's Law as an additional music composer, cementing the start of his professional career.
Outside of being a filmmaker, Aaron is an accomplished session singer. His voice has appeared on various Disney TV Animation shows, notably Phineas and Ferb, Milo Murphy's Law, and Sofia the First.
Aaron is a founding member and serves as the Development Manager of Debatable Productions, which provides film, theatre, and music production opportunities to youth and young adults. He also co-created The Lucid Podcast with frequent collaborator, Austin S. Harris.
