At 22, Spencer Susser had established himself as a film editor, working with directors such as Mark Romanek, Roman Coppola, Peter Care, and David LaChapelle. He’s come a long way since making Super-8 movies at 16. Spencer is most known for his work in commercials and music videos, but has made a comprehensive push over the last few years towards narrative film making. He now divides his time between Los Angeles and Sydney, where the short film I LOVE SARAH JANE was shot.
Spencer directed the short after penning it along side David Michod, delivering a tender hearted tale of horror. It tells the heartwarming story of the awkwardness of your first love, all set against the backdrop of the zombie apocalypse.
I LOVE SARAH JANE garnered awards in 2008 from the Nashville Film Festival, Arizona International Film Festival, and Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and all with due cause.
His short attracted the attention of those willing to invest in his feature film HESHER, starring Rainn Wilson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, which has raised quite a few eyebrows since its recent debut at the Sundance Film Festival.
