01 about


I'm Jon Austin, a film editor, director, screenwriter, and so much more. I've been honing my craft and love for the production world for well over a decade through graduating from film school, working in fast-paced editing environments, as well as production houses. I am constantly working to find new ideas to explore and fellow creatives to connect with.

I am a coffee-fanatic, cat dad, husband, and professional mustache grower. If i'm not filming, editing, or working on creative projects, you can find me traveling to as many places as I can, enjoying game nights with friends, or reading Stephen King novels. 

"POOL TALKS" is the name I have attributed to this creative endeavor. It was created during a summer when my wife and I spent hours at the pool drinking painkillers and sharing our dreams for our future careers and how we want to make those come to fruition.

I am currently available to do freelance work in a variety of areas, so please continue to scroll down for a preview of my work and more ways to get in touch.


Thanks for stopping by
