Justin Geldzahler is a writer and filmmaker from central Virginia who focuses on genre stories that double as dramedies about people struggling to connect. He recently wrote and directed his first feature GLUE TRAP and served as a consultant and contributing writer on the final season of HBO’s SUCCESSION. Last year his rollicking western THE QUIET KIND was chosen for both the GLAAD List and the Black List feature lab, and this spring he developed his animated comedy series BEARS IN HUMAN SUITS with the Almanack Screenwriters lab in Costa Rica. In addition to making tons of short films, he has researched for and contributed to EUPHORIA (HBO), FOSSE/VERDON (FX), THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA (HBO), RESPECT (MGM), OUTLANDER (Starz), and FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (MGM). Also one time Justin wrote an allegedly mean tweet that Larry King was forced to read on Kimmel.
