Jesica ANDRES | PRODUCER & PRODUCTION MANAGER
A native of the Philippines, Jesica’ obsession with the art of storytelling began at the age of two, when she would orate tall tales from atop a bench at the local market. She spent her childhood between the Philippines and California. After graduating from University, she went on to film school, where she developed her passion for producing. Her love of producing took her to her first job at Academy Award Winning production company GK Films (The Departed, Hugo) where she worked in International Sales. She then moved on Lionsgate (The Hunger Games), where she worked with one of the most formidable domestic international sales teams. The opportunity to move into production presented itself at Arclight Films (Lord of War, The Bank Job), where she is currently Manager of Creative and Operations. At Arclight, she has her hands deep in two upcoming A-list films, one which shoots in Puerto Rico in 4th qtr 2013 and Canada, 1st qtr 2014, respectively. For Jesica, understanding film financing, international sales and producing all serve the tantamount goal she’s held on to since the age of two: To master the art of telling a great story.
