Film & TV

In addition to writing books, I also create, write, and produce for TV.

Through my company Awesome, I collaborate with some of the best producers and broadcasters in the business.  We currently have five shows in production with best-in-class partners:


I’ve just rolled off Executive Producing a smash, crash pre-school show with the great team at Nelvana…


It’s an adaptation of Jon Scieszka’s Trucktown, the best-selling, rambunctious books about Jack Truck, Dump Truck Dan and a cast of rough and tumble trucks.  It’s full of smash-crash fun for preschoolers and preschoolers at heart.  Take a look…

Trucktown is produced by Nelvana and is on-air around the world.  Check out the Trucktown YouTube Channel!

I also love to “play” in short form content with more experimental stuff…



THE FIRST ZOMBIE is the story of a reluctant zombie, fresh from the grave, who just wants to get his life back.  It examines the comedic struggles of a new zombie in a world made for the living, not the living dead.  Sometimes even the living dead deserve a second chance.  Written & directed by Jeff Norton, produced by 1947 Films.



ABOVE WATER is a film about a chance encounter between a suicidal banker and a teenage busker.  Written and directed in only 24 hours and filmed on location in at the Occupy LSX protests, Above Water is a lyrical, emotional exploration of fate, destiny, and friendship.

Written & directed by Jeff Norton, and produced by 1947 Films, ABOVE WATER has played numerous film festivals, including the 2013 London Short Film Festival.
