Elliot was born and raised in the US. In 2000 he completed a Masters in Filmmaking and Screenwriting at Columbia University’s Graduate Film Program. His first music promo he shot for TV On The Radio’s auspicious first single ‚Staring At The Sun’.
The Philly-born director crafts stories that are as rich and varied in style as they are in narrative. From a multi-media fable for Pinback, ‚Fortress’, or his epic sculptural live action/CG encounter, ‚Dreams’ for TV On The Radio, Jokelson draws on a vastly varied technical arsenal to deliver endearing, engaging tales.
