Jeff Tremaine is a producer and director. He is most well-known for co-creating the cultural phenomenon Jackass - the MTV show that spawned a thousand knockoffs and led to 4 #1 box office hits: Jackass the Movie, Jackass Number Two, Jackass 3D, and Bad Grandpa.
Jeff is also behind many popular tv series like Rob & Big, Fantasy Factory, Nitro Circus, Loiter Squad, and Ridiculousness. With friends Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze, Jeff co-owned the production company Dickhouse and now has his own production company, Gorilla Flicks. Jeff has directed or produced several documentaries, including The Birth of Big Air for ESPN, and The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia for Tribeca Film.
He has directed numerous national commercials, including the Super Bowl Bud Light spot titled “Up for Whatever.” One of his most recent projects - and the one he believes will be his most watched EVER - is the American Airlines safety video that plays at the beginning of every flight.
