Zai Jackson

Studio Assistant

Born in San Antonio, Texas and raised all over the west coast of North America, Zai attributes his superpower—that is, his ability to befriend literally anyone—to his eclectic upbringing. Whether he’s cooking for you, sharing meditation techniques, or inviting you to tag along on one of his adventures, he will always find a way to forge a connection. Inspired by the power of film to create new relationships and elicit deep emotions, Zai sold his possessions and left Colorado State Pueblo where he spent three and a half years playing collegiate football, and headed to Wilmington in pursuit of his dreams of becoming a director and DP in the film industry. As a studio assistant, Zai has his hand in all departments, becoming an ever more well-rounded member of the Lighthouse team.
