Jeffrey Schwarz
Jeffrey Schwarz is the President & CEO of Automat Pictures, a Los Angeles based entertainment company specializing in the production of narrative and documentary films, original television programming, DVD Added Value and studio EPKs (electronic press kits). Jeffrey launched Automat in the early days of the DVD format, realizing the potential for compelling documentary programming in the tried-and-true "behind the scenes" genre.

Jeffrey has since contributed to the success of dozens of major studio releases, producing such documentaries as "You Can't Stop the Beat: The Long Journey of Hairspray," "No Day But Today: The Story of Rent," "Blonde Poison: The Making of Basic Instinct," "Inside of the Labyrinth: The Making of The Silence of the Lambs," and "Mysteries of Love," profiling David Lynch's masterpiece Blue Velvet, and dozens more. Jeffrey's documentary, "People Like Us: Making Philadelphia," premiered at the 2003 San Francisco Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. He was executive producer of "Whether You Like It Or Not: The Story of Hedwig," which has enjoyed a life beyond DVD at film festivals around the world.

In television, Schwarz brought "Reservoir Dogs Revisited," a celebration of Quentin Tarantino's classic, and "Still Swingin'," a retrospective on the indie favorite Swingers, to the Independent Film Channel, as well as several episodes of "HBO First Look." Most recently, Schwarz produced two original documentaries for the Encore Network, "Shooting the Police: Cops on Film" and "Hitchcocked!" Automat's first feature film, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds, was produced in association with Ariztical Entertainment and received its theatrical premiere in 2006. He is currently in production on Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon, a documentary portrait of 1970s porn legend Jack Wrangler, and in development on several feature films, including a biopic of notorious underground filmmaker George Kuchar.

A New York native, Jeffrey attended SUNY Purchase's Film Department, earning a BFA in Film. His senior thesis project was the documentary "Al Lewis In The Flesh," which profiled Al "Grampa" Lewis, octogenarian star of TV's The Munsters. This film observes the American pastime of celebrity adulation and led to Jeffrey's on-going interest in producing films about popular culture and Americana.
