OFFICIAL SELECTION 2008 SANTA BARBARA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

This serrated sendoff on childhood is a heartfelt coming-of-age comedy that observes an inverse relationship between ones level of stress and the ability to grow pubic hair. Does camp feel like prison? asks this summer saga of four best friends who hate each other. Young Fetus (think Woody Allen at 10) struggles for status while confused by his first summer love. Abandoned by friends, rejected by love, and confined, Fetus risks summers without sunlight for romance and glory. Former DreamWorks and Disney animator Jacob Medjuck abandons all courteous conventions and polite expectations writing for and directing his child actors, as if the characters of South Park and Charlie Brown had a school play. Be forewarned—this tuneful nostalgic joyride "featuring" your children is in no way "for" your children.

Jacob Medjuck
Having animated for DREAMWORKS FEATURE ANIMATION, WALT DISNEY INTERACTIVE, Sony, Warner Brothers and Fox, Jacob was recruited to be Senior Vice President: DIRECTOR OF CONTENT, to write, produce and direct for an international motion simulator firm. While working as a classical animator, Jacob performed on tour in stand-up comedy OPENING FOR TIM ALLEN at Yuk Yuk's in Toronto and appeared for HBO at MADISON SQUARE GARDENS in New York. He won Best Acting Award at the 2005 ShockerFest International Film Festival playing the lead in the horror short "Tall Tale Heart". As a student, Jacob won GOLD AND SILVER MEDALS at two International Science Fairs. This fall, RAINMAKER ANIMATION hired Jacob to pen a Computer Animated Feature Film, a book adaptation of a popular science fiction trilogy. It is because of these diverse accomplishments in film, animation, music and comedy that Jacob's rich creative work is both innovative and precise. Summerhood is his feature directorial debut.
