|Jon Schnepp is an American Director, Writer, Producer. Jon has made original programming for Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, FX, MTV, Nickelodeon, SpikeTV, Magnet Releasing, and Comedy Central. |
Schnepp started his career as Art Director/Animation Director / Editor for MTV’s live action interactive movie “Club Dead,” and then immediately moved into editing many episodes of “Space Ghost: Coast to Coast” back before Adult Swim was Adult Swim. He then went on to direct the Pilot and multiple segments for “The Upright Citizens Brigade” on Comedy Central.
Jon then moved to Hollywood, California, to pursue further adventures in media. After working on many different projects in CA., Jon designed and created the band characters of Dethklok for Tommy Blacha and Brendon Small, and they sold the series to Adult Swim a few months afterwards. Schnepp went on to direct 34 episodes and co-produce all four seasons of the mega-hit Adult Swim animated series “Metalocalypse.” Jon also directed over 15 animated music videos for the Dethklok live concert tour. Schnepp co-plotted and did covers for the new Dark Horse Comic Book Series based on “Metalocalypse.”
Jon has also co-directed season 4.1 of “The Venture Bros.,” directed the “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” 3D Origin, co-directed two episodes of Marvel’s “Black Panther,” and wrote the three episodes produced for the “Underworld” animated series.
He is one of the 26 Directors from all across the globe picked for the feature film anthology called “The ABCs of Death.” His segment “W is for WTF” is a high octane blend of Horror and Comedy, mixed into a multi-media meltdown.
Schnepp has recently run two incredibly successful Kickstarter Campaigns, raising over $188,000 to make the animated pilot episode for Zenescope’s “Grimm Fairy Tales,” of which he also executive produced, wrote and directed. He then went on to raise $115,000 on Kickstarter to direct and produce a feature length documentary about “The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?”
