J. T. Petty (self-styled JT Petty, born 28 February 1977 in Raleigh, North Carolina) is an American film director, author, and video game writer. Petty's films and novels contain elements of the horror genre. He is best known for his writing on the Ubisoft video game, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
After shooting his first feature, Soft for Digging, in 1998 as a thesis project at NYU, it went on to screen at several festivals, most notably The Sundance Film Festival in 2002. Paced more like a silent film, it was recognized for its low budget of six thousand dollars and display of the death of animals and children.
After this, Petty directed films for production companies such as Miramax and HDNet. Currently[when?] he is working on a remake of Faces of Death, which is being reworked as a fictional narrative.
