jack hsu ∙ co-Chief creative officer
Growing up in Taiwan and Japan, Jack Hsu enjoyed a creative infusion of culture before moving to California at the age of sixteen. Hsu would go on to earn architectural degrees from two of the world's most prestigious universities—Berkeley and Yale, before his love of cinema and animation drew him to Hollywood.
A childhood obsessed with manga, animation and Hong Kong movies helped forge Hsu's uniquely self-taught cinematic vision and story sensibility. This skill set proved to be an immediate draw for a film industry in search of an "East meets West" perspective that would appeal to a global audience. After tremendous success at Columbia Pictures and Disney Studios, Hsu was recruited by Sam Raimi to lend his creative vision to an experiment—a live-action version of the iconic Spider-Man which would grow into a trilogy under Hsu's guidance.
Jack Hsu would go on to help Sony Pictures Animation produce hit franchises such as "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs" and "Hotel Transylvania" among others before bringing his expertise to Warner Bros’ "Lego Batman" as well as numerous animated features for Hong Kong’s Unicorn Studios and China’s Hengdian Studios.
In Hsu's "free-time", he produced an award-winning noir graphic novel, 8-9-3 which garnishing the attention of John Woo and HBO, who would eventually purchase the right to develop into a live-action television series in collaboration with producer / director Michael Mann (Heat, Miami Vice).
Hsu joined SupaPop Studios in 2014 and has been instrumental in the creative development of the SPS roster of media and original Intellectual Property.
