God sustained Doodu boy....continued

Directed by Jared Scheib

Jared Scheib is the dramaturge and director of Doodu Boy, his second play after Wrestles With Machista. He recently completed the festival run for his first feature documentary film, The Mayor, and is in post-production on his second, tentatively titled Love Potatoes. His commercial, Do You Believe in a Secular America?, won the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science’s social media contest. His films have been exhibited at the Directors Guild of America (Hollywood), Dallas Museum of Art, Tel Aviv Cinematheque, Auckland Art Gallery and Roxie Theater (San Francisco); broadcast on television in Texas (PBS) and Israel (Channel 8); and distributed online via iTunes, Amazon and SnagFilms. In addition to film and theater, Jared manages friend and artist, Cecelia Webber, whose human bodies artwork has gone viral worldwide. Jared is an artist-entrepreneur from Dallas, Texas, with a B.A. from the University of Southern California, where he studied film production in the School of Cinematic Arts and neuroscience as an inaugural member of the Brain and Creativity Institute. Jared believes that content is king, and to that end he imbues his works with universality, authenticity and intensity, striving to emphasize what makes art meaningful: honest emotion.
