New York Film Academy Notable Alumni

Nick Jones Jr.


Nick Jones Jr. served in the United States Marine Corps before leaving to pursue a career in the film industry.

He started his career as an actor. Before long he was itching to create the worlds he helped bring to life on screen. He studied filmmaking at the New York Film Academy where he learned to write and direct.

Jones interned on the ABC comedy “The Middle” as a director, learning from the show’s main director Lee Shallat-Chemel. He later became the mentee of feature film director Dito Montiel and recently worked with him on his latest film, “Man Down,” starring Shia Labeouf and Gary Oldman, as the film’s military consultant.

Nick’s new half hour comedy “Jonesin'” is written with Mel Jones and was selected Sundance Institute’s 2018 Episodic Lab Fellows.
