About Jay

Splitting his time between the US and China, Texas-based filmmaker Jay Hubert began his professional career as a DP in China after studying in the prestigious cinematography department at Beijing Film Academy. He then worked as an assistant to top-tier Chinese cinematographer Wang Yu on numerous commercials and feature films for several years. More recently he has shot and/or directed a number of commercials, documentaries, and promos for clients such as Apple, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Intel, Lenovo, China Unicom, Xiaomi, Evona, Nylon, and Vanke, while also working on several Chinese feature films. In 2013 he served as Director of Photography for Volkswagen Group China's "People's Car Project - Building the Car Series", a 10-episode web series awarded a Gold Lion at Cannes Lions. Hubert has written and directed over 20 short films, several of which have screened and won awards at international film festivals. He is fluent in Mandarin and Japanese, and conversant in Cantonese and Korean.
