Jason Halpin

Jason Halpin is an attorney in Syracuse, New York. Jason graduated from Syracuse University in 2003, where he studied Television, Radio and Film at the Newhouse School. As a senior, Jason co‐wrote, produced and directed his first documentary film, a feature‐length social and political piece on the impact the closing the nation’s oldest and largest chocolate plant would have on a town and the plant’s workers. Upon graduation, Jason teamed with Lukas Korver and traveled to Florida to work as a field producer on a documentary about the questionable suicide of a black man residing in a racially divided, impoverished community located deep in the Glades region of the state. Since finishing work on that film, Jason has worked as a director/producer on a number of other projects including working as program coordinator, writer, and associate producer for CBS‐owned College Sports TV. He has also co‐wrote and co‐produced a public service announcement for the Fallen Heroes Fund airing nationally on NBC.
