Jem Elsner was born in Cassiar, British Columbia, the site of a remote mining camp. His first visual impressions were formed by a spectacular Canadian landscape of endless sky, river and forested mountainsides surrounding his family’s northern homestead. Since moving from Canada in 2008, Elsner has since designed a variety of projects from hit music videos for artists such as Justin Bieber, Diddy, Usher, Mary J Blige and Lil Wayne, to shorts, and feature films.
Jem currently resides in Los Angeles, California where he is employed as a freelance Production Designer, and union (IATSE Local 44) property department.
