Actor, Writer, Aspiring Producer
Aaron Jin is a gay, Asian-American writer and filmmaker originating from the theatre world. With the limited gay stories, few Asian stories, and nearly no gay Asian stories, Aaron sought to bring those stories to life. His recent treatment for a mother-son film Blondie was a finalist in NFFTY's first ever Short Film Treatment Competition. His producing debut Stormy Skies focused on a video-game-infused lesbian love story, and he is developing his first feature length script Sorry I Kissed You after a workshop at the Playground Experiment and Sundance Collab's Writing Your Comedy Feature class. Recently, Aaron was an actor and music director at the landmark 5th Avenue Theatre. He acted in the feature film Potato Dreams and his solo show was a finalist for the Pan-Asian Repertory Theatre's NUWORKS Festival. A passionate artist and activist trained through artEquity's national facilitator training program, he served on grant panels, led activism-focused workshops, and markets for nonprofit arts organization in Seattle.
