Jason Neulander

writer/director/producer The Intergalactic Nemesis; writer/director Hit & Run, Buttercup
Jason Neulander is an award-winning theatre artist, filmmaker, and producer based in Austin, Texas. He founded and was the artistic director of Austin’s premiere producer of new plays Salvage Vanguard Theater from 1994 to 2008. Over his tenure he grew the company from producing in rock clubs to building its own facility with two theaters, a gallery, office space, and rehearsal rooms. Writers whose first professional productions he produced there have gone on to Broadway and major television series. His transmedia sci-fi multiverse THE Intergalactic Nemesis, premiered in 2010. It takes the form of graphic novels, a YouTube series, podcasts, audio dramas, novels, and a live theatrical tour. From 2011 to 2017 the tour played more than 200 venues around the world, including runs on Broadway and sold-out performances at the Kennedy Center, and was adapted for television by PBS. It was named “Best of Austin” in 2011 and has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and TBS’s Conan (with Conan O’Brien as a performer). In 2015, Neulander began working in film. His first short film Hit& Run was selected for the Texas Filmmakers Showcase and is distributed by Devolver Digital Film. Since then he has written and directed another short (Buttercup) and authored two feature-length screenplays. Both shorts have screen at the Austin Film Festival. His work was featured in the PBS television series “Arts In Context” in 2013. He is currently in pre-production for his first feature, a narrative film entitled Fugitive Pieces.
