About Jacob Mann
Jacob Mann is a mixed media director and cinematographer who specializes in creating unique audience experiences. Growing up in South America, Jacob was immersed in the skate and music culture and began directing shorts as young as 10 years old. This grab and and go minimalistic approach to filmmaking has carried over to his professional career; capturing moments in unconventional ways to fully tell the right story.
As a multi-cam director, Jacob has taken the standard approaches and flipped them upside down by immersing himself in the performers artistic expression. Instead of tired cuts and standard framing, Jacob cuts live to music and encourages his crew to not be afraid of being creative on spot. The result has been a growing demand from festivals and artists alike. Some notable projects include; Coachella, FYF Fest, Will Ferrell and Chad Smith drum off, BET Experience, Air and Style, and much more.
Jacob is the co-founder of the newly founded Mixed Media Design Studio, Los Nativs, which specializes in live event coverage, multi-cam, and storytelling.

Metro Red Line
Yes, Los Angeles has a subway and if possible you ought to use it. Riders are dropped of at Sunset and Vermont and then it is a walk of several blocks and uphill to get to the Theatre. The Park has a gated stairway ending at Barnsdall Ave, just behind the strip mall. It's the only access point from this side, but it is often locked. There is long, tree-shaded stairway leading from Hollywood Blvd to the Gallery Theatre and this area is sometimes shared with a homeless population. The best route for people who use mobility devices is the sidewalk along the Barnsdall Park road access. More info on the Red Line can be found here.
PARKING: Parking is FREE. There is ample parking on top of hill near the Art Park. Parking extends around the perimeter of the Park. NOTE: Please park your car diagonally even though the spaces are not marked that way. If there are no spaces to park at top, then use parking lot at bottom of hill near Hollywood Blvd. Click HERE to download a PDF(300K) of the grounds that points out the parking areas and includes other helpful hints.
