Get to Know me

Writer. Director. Actor. Designer. Drummer. Model. Artist. Canvas. Columnist. Proudest Papa EVER. As Creative Director of the straight jacket-tested/doctor-approved Mad Ones Films, from Greensboro NC, Jaysen Buterin’s mission has been to make movies magical again and to show the unbridled kaleidoscopic creativity just waiting to be unleashed when the inmates are finally allowed to run the cinematic asylum. He is the writer/director of award-winning indie film fare such as the Tarantino-meets-Twilight Zone trilogy, “The Gospel According to Booze, Bullets & Hot Pink Jesus,” the on-the-road black & white thriller, “Between Hell and a Hard Place,” and the sinister stay-at-home horror hits “Don’t Let the Light In” and “The Corner.” He’s currently awaiting the Hollywood studio release of his very first feature-length film, the coulrophobia-courting/clown-killing thrilling goodness of “KILL GIGGLES,” while diving into pre-production on his latest spell of movie magic, “The Blue-Eyed Boy and Mister Death,” shooting later this summer.
