Hey! I'm Jim Dirschberger, an Emmy-Nominated producer, game designer, and filmmaker working in Los Angeles. I founded both Eighty Four Films and Wide Right Interactive with the goal of creating original content with other emerging artists.
To date, I've produced and directed short films, commercials, and music videos for clients such as Vans, ESPN, Nike, Adult Swim, Sub Pop, Vice, and Nintendo.
My first feature film, Honest Man: The Life of R.Budd Dwyer, was released in 2010. I was the Co-Creator, Director, and Executive Producer of Sanjay & Craig, an Emmy nominated animated show on Nickelodeon.
My first videogame, Freedom Finger, launched on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam in 2020. Most recently, I launched my second game, What The Dub?!, in 2021.
