Jordan Alan is an award-winning American film director. He has been actively creating short and feature films ever since he learned to operate a Super 8 camera at home in Bayonne, New Jersey. After graduating Montclair High School with awards for both Best Short and Best Feature Length Film, Alan directed a promotional trailer starring his friend Sandra Bullock. The trailer caught the attention of production company, Distant Horizon, and gave way to the creation of Alan’s first full-length feature film, Terminal Bliss.
Terminal Bliss garnered rave reviews, being called “extraordinary” and “an exceptional first effort” by film critics. The film went on to unprecedented success in festivals as well as in its theatrical and video releases. Alan’s second feature, the chronicle of a Los Angeles hit man, Love and Happiness, allowed this young director to really come into his own. A highly creative and vibrant piece of work, Love and Happiness experiments with an improvisational framework that “…maintains a break-neck momentum with an inventiveness that rivets viewer attention” (Daily Variety).
Kiss and Tell, Alan’s third feature film – starring Heather Graham and Rose McGowan, along with indie favorites Justine Bateman, Peter Greene and a record-breaking four Arquettes (Richmond, David, Lewis, and Alexis) – was screened at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. Alan went on to collaborate with former convict Charlie Mattera, a real-life bank robber and creator of the television series Househusbands of Hollywood, on the film biography Gentleman Bandit. He has since written, produced and directed several feature films including Cats Dancing on Jupiter starring his wife, Amanda Righetti, and Deconstruction Red. Alan and his wife currently work and reside in Los Angeles, CA.
