    Jackson Cropper is a director, writer, and producer from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Rooted in historical and regional imagery, his narrative and documentary work aims to reflect facets of American life in vivid, human detail and explore the complexities of Americana.

Focusing on matters regarding

visual anthropology and cultural identity, his work utilizes scripted narrative, folkloric documentation, and asynchronous ethnography. Through this, he hopes viewers can gain valuable insight into regional differences, contemplate aspects of rural lifestyle, and connect with flawed, but colorful characters.

    His award-winning fictional shorts and documentaries have aired across local and national television and have earned upwards of $5,000 in prize money.
