Jess & Nate 2

A Short Film by Alex Zajicek

A still from "Jess & Nate 2."

Jess & Nate return to the forest once again, this time to search for Jess' phone.


"Jess & Nate 2" is a sequel to my 2014 short film "Jess & Nate."

Currently in post production, this short film is a mix of comedy and drama, with a runtime of approximately 10 minutes.


Featuring a cast and crew entirely made up of San Francisco Bay Area residents, and shot entirely in Tilden Regional Park in the East Bay, "Jess & Nate 2" is a coming-of-age story about understanding and personal growth.


Danielle Bacanskas - "Jess"

A little hot tempered and short-sighted, Jess spends a little too much time on her phone. Nonetheless, she means well, even if it's a little tucked away on the inside.

Henry Chavez - "Nate"

Nate is the class clown. Or at least he thinks he is. He's a good person, but that can sometimes be obscured by his personality. He also loves food.
