The most cinematically oriented of the contributors to MTV's sketch series Human Giant (2007), filmmaker Jason Woliner took his first Hollywood bow at age seven when tapped by executive producer Robert Klane to play "the screaming kid" in the goofball farce Weekend at Bernie's (1989). In his late teens and early twenties, Woliner began writing and helming a series of comic shorts on both videotape and film, including "Partisan Jab," a compendium of satirical political sketches run as a standing installation at the Museum of the Moving Image. Woliner also contributed occasional sketches to the VH1 network's Best Week Ever. As one of the foremost creators of Giant (alongside Rob Huebel, Aziz Ansari, Paul Scheer, and others), Woliner directed program sketches but never appeared in them.
