Jerry has been a fan of animation for as long as he can remember, including anime, and fell in love with 3D animation at his first exposure to an old Saturday morning series called ReBoot. He is also a fan of comics, and is a huge fan of the DC Animated Universe! Jerry has always had a knack for writing, even starting his own blog years ago called “Truth Be Told”. This lead to a growing fascination with writing for animation. After realizing a growing demand for fresh, new, and minority characters in the science fiction/fantasy/superhero genre, Jerry felt it was time to create a new universe of characters that would meet these demands, Fantastic Dimension was created. He has worked on Fantastic Dimension for over seven years now, regularly expanding the universe and adding new, interesting characters. At this point there are well over 50+ diverse characters within the Fantastic Dimension Universe, and steadily growing! After sharing the Fantastic Dimension script and slate of characters with MPMG and Outland Entertainment, they agreed to partner with Jerry to help develop a graphic novel and animated series for television to bring the entire Fantastic Dimension Universe to life for the rest of the world to enjoy!
