Find me on:

Jacob Templin is a video journalist for TIME, where he reports, shoots, edits and produces short video stories for the web and electronic versions of the magazine. He has covered a variety of stories, from flying fish in the Illinois River to malnutrition in rural Indonesia, and innovative marketing strategies in the new music business. Jacob has also shot and reported videos for The New York Times, Pitchfork, NPR and The Economist.

Last year, Jacob co-produced and directed a short documentary film about Franco 'The Great', a legendary muralist who has been painting Harlem's soon-to-be-extinct storefront gates for 40 years. The film has screened in a number of  festivals and was picked up by the PBS program AfroPop where it was aired across the country. Prior to that, Jacob co-produced and directed Positive Voices: Leading Together, a feature-length documentary film about AIDS activists for the nonprofit Ontario HIV Treatment Program in Toronto, Canada. Jacob has worked jobs across the globe--making films in Canada, selling books in Ireland and teaching English in South Korea.

He holds a master's degree from Columbia University's School of Journalism and a bachelor of fine arts at York University in Toronto.
