Jeremy Hsing

Jeremy Hsing is a humanistic sci-fi writer, mental health advocate, and second-gen Taiwanese immigrant based in LA. He specializes in using his psychology background (BA in Psychology and double minor in art history and film from UCLA) to construct elaborate worlds in which his characters are forced to experience an internal reckoning and question their morality in the pursuit of an emotional catharsis.

Past experiences include being Editor-in-Chief of his high school newspaper, Development Intern at Film Independent, AAPI Student Lead at the Center for Scholars & Storytellers, Public Engagement and Education Intern at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, Development Intern at FilmNation, and DEI intern at WarnerDiscovery. He’s also written, produced, and directed two short films that combine magical realism with intergenerational trauma titled Iridescence and Fish. Additionally, he was awarded the Leon Silverman Scholarship at the 2022 Academy Gold Graduation ceremony and paired with Lee Isaac Chung for a mentorship through the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

A Get Lit Screenwriters Lab Fellow, RespectAbility Entertainment Lab TV Writing Fellow, and Coverfly Best Unrepped Writers List 2022 Honoree, in his free time, Jeremy loves to listen to Kendrick Lamar due to his lyrical exploration of intergenerational trauma and toxic masculinity. Additionally, he is a die-hard fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. He currently is elated to be a RespectAbility Entertainment and News Media Fellow.
