Bulger, Jay


On animator festival in years:

Jay Bulger is a writer and director. During his studies at the Fordham University he boxed in several New York Golden Glove boxing tournaments. Photographs of his fighting launched him onto the cover of Vogue and then he started modeling for brands such as Armani, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Kenneth Cole, and Hermés. After a 2-year bout with cancer, Jay dedicated himself to writing and directing. He has directed several music videos and commercials.
For his Rolling Stone Magazine article “In Search of Ginger Baker”, Jay spent three months living with the rock legend in South Africa where Ginger has spent the previous decade living in seclusion. The article and the numerous hours of interviews Jay captured on film became the premise for “Beware of Mr. Baker”. In the spring of 2010, Jay returned to South Africa with a small film crew to finish making the film.
