Jason Russell
Jason Russell is one of the original founders of the media-driven nonprofit Invisible Children, Inc. A graduate of USC Production Film School, his experience in film has run the gamut - he's co-directed a documentary seen by millions, sold his musical "Moxie" to Steven Spielberg, and served as the assistant to the director for Disney's blockbuster Step Up 2. Russell's experience extends beyond the screen however as he has directed and choreographed over 20 theatrical stage productions and performed in over 100 different shows. Combining his love for story with his heart for cultures, Russell, along with Invisible Children co-founders Bobby Bailey and Laren Poole, were the recipients of Heartland Film Festival's distinguished Pioneering Spirit Award and the Congressional Coalition's Adoption Angels Award. His revolutionary approach to humanitarian work has put Russell at the forefront of a generational movement for peace, and he continues to serve as a keynote speaker across the country, empowering youth to become more involved in the global landscape.
