KONG: SKULL ISLAND
JORDAN VOGT-ROBERTS (Director) is an American film and
television director hailing from the ashes of Detroit.
Vogt-Roberts began his feature career with the film, "The Kings of Summer,"
which he directed. The film premiered in competition at the 2013 Sundance Film
Festival to critical acclaim.
The very next year in 2014, Vogt-Roberts was back at Sundance as a producer and
director for the world premiere of Nick Offerman's Netflix concert film "Nick
Offerman: American Ham."
Prior to the success of "The Kings of Summer," Vogt-Roberts directed the short
film "Successful Alcoholics," starring Lizzy Caplan, Nick Kroll and Tony Hale.
The film debuted at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and subsequently screened at
more than 30 festivals worldwide, including South by Southwest and AFI.
On the television and web side, Vogt-Roberts created and directed the incredibly
visual-minded Comedy Central television series "Mash Up" in 2011. He also
directed Stephen Falk's pilot "You're the Worst," which is now a hit original
series on FX Networks entering its fourth season.
Vogt-Roberts also creates web and commercial content for Ridley Scott's RSA
productions where he has also directed award-winning projects that have reached
millions of viewers. This includes a recent campaign for Audi starring Claire
Danes and a PSA with Arnold Schwarzenegger crushing cars in his M47 Patton tank,
which got over 10 million views in one day and raised over $1 million for
charity. Vogt-Roberts' early work in web content with comedians like Thomas
Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Hannibal Buress and Pete Holmes helped lay the
groundwork for current online content creation and distribution models.
He is currently attached to direct the video game adaption "Metal Gear Solid"
and uses his free time to help with a non-profit called the Detroit Creativity
Project that offers improv free of charge in Detroit public schools.
