Jonpaul Lewis is the "Jack" and master of many trades as an independent filmmaker. He is the writer, editor, director, producer, and lead actor of a three-minute short short story animation/live action character driven horror film called Jack the Ripper featuring a unique mix of 8,000 still photographs and stop motion animation techniques.
He has many other plans in the works including an original remake of David Lynch’s The Elephant Man and a full length version of Jack the Ripper as well. Jonpaul is inspired by a variety of newer and older filmmakers including Tim Burton, Ray Harryhausen, and the early films of Thomas Edison.
Jack the Ripper has played a number of festivals and debuted in New England at the 2007 MergingArts Short Short Story Film Festival.
