Jackie! Zhou is non-binary and ageless. They are a Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist, director, and sound designer who is keen on blurring the lines between formats and disciplines. Their short “Order for Pickup” was produced through Hillman Grad and Indeed’s Rising Voices fellowship and premiered at 2023 Tribeca Film Festival. Recent work includes the interactive documentary “FaceTime,” produced by POV Spark and NFB, and “thumbnail”, a work-in-progress experimental play. Their sound work has received a Primetime Emmy nomination, a MPSE Golden Reel, and the 2021 Tribeca X Award. Most recently, they performed in Free Solo: The Musical in the role of Jimmy Chin. Their favorite sounds are water drops hitting a hot stove, snow crunching footsteps, and a juicy overheard conversation. Every year, they try to compete on one game show, with hopes of one day getting on Jeopardy!. Above all, they believe good listeners make great storytellers.
