JOE NUSSBAUM (Director), a native of Rochester, New York, graduated from USC film school in 1996. After writing and producing movie trailers, Nussbaum directed and co-wrote the short film George Lucas in Love. The short became a phenomenon on the internet, with millions watching it online. The seven-minute film also played in and won awards at numerous film festivals around the world. With its web fan base and international media attention, George Lucas in Love went on sale to the public; with over 75,000 copies sold on video and DVD to date, it is seen as the most successful short film of all time.
Nussbaum parlayed the success of his short film into a commercial directing career, helming over thirty TV spots for a variety of North American companies, and receiving accolades from Boards magazine as an up-and-coming commercial director. After developing feature film projects at a number of major studios, Sleepover is Nussbaum's feature directorial debut.
