Jesse Hoy

Musician/Director


Since graduating from UCSB, Hoy took a job on the MTV Show “Trippin,” (2005) where he got to go to Africa and shoot Super 8mm on MTV's dime and than took a job as the Post-Coordinator on the feature, Jackass Number Two (2006). Moving from television to music, Hoy put all of his creative energy towards his band, The Deadly Syndrome, with fellow film major, Will Etling. The Deadly Syndrome actually came together at UCSB’s annual silent film festival, Reel Loud. In the last two years, The Deadly Syndrome has released their first record, where Hoy directed two of their music videos and cut a short-form documentary about their second trip to SXSW music festival, and has gone on two national tours!
