JESSY TERRERO (Director/Producer) marks his feature film directorial debut with Soul Plane. Terrero's short film The Clinic was chosen to screen at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival and has been screened at the New York International Latino Film Festival, Urbanworld, and the Los Angeles Short Film Festival. Terrero is currently in talks to develop The Clinic into a feature film. He was selected to be a participant in Fox Searchlight Pictures' new digital production unit, Fox Searchlab, which recognizes and mentors emerging filmmakers with exciting new cinematic voices.
With his third music video, Terrero had already garnered critical acclaim and music video award nominations from MTV and Billboard Magazine for Gettin' In The Way for Jill Scott, which he followed up with the MTV buzz-worthy follow-up Long Walk.
Terrero shot his first student film on Super 8, which helped him earn an associate producer internship with the romantic comedy I Like It Like That. In 1996, he teamed up with his brother and formed TandT Casting, supervising extras casting for low-budget films.
While working as a casting agent, Terrero spent months juggling auditions between casting sessions. Terrero's acting credits include speaking roles in Law and Order, Brooklyn South, and The Sopranos as well as the first Spanish-language S.A.G. film, In Search of a Dream. In addition to all of this, Terrero made his first music video for Ghetto Concept which was nominated for a Much Music Award in Canada.
To date, Terrero has worked with 50 Cent on Wanksta and Many Men, Nick Cannon on Your Pop Don't Like Me, Snoop Dogg on Tell It Like It Is, Musiq Soulchild on Half Crazy Remix, The Roots on Break U Off, Mystikal on Bouncin' Back, G Unit on Smile and I Wanna Get to Know You, Jonell featuring Method Man on Around and Around, and Syleena Johnson on I Am Your Woman, which was nominated for Billboard's Video Music Awards Best New Adult Contemporary Artist Clip of the Year 2001.
