Jesse Ewles (aka Jesse Yules) (born December 13, 1981) is a Canadian independent filmmaker based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Jesse has recently adopted the alternate spelling "Yules", for use on his feature film projects.

Jesse has directed music videos for the bands Grizzly Bear, Of Montreal and Owen Pallett.[1] In January 2010, he completed his first short film for Bravo! TV entitled Kingdom of Frogs.[2] His main influences include Charlie Kaufman, Jan Švankmajer, Julian Schnabel, William Blake as well as Public Broadcasting animations from the 1970s produced by the CBC and PBS.[3] Fables are a common theme in his work. On December 22, 2008, he was recognized by the web blog as the best unsigned director of 2008.[4] In November 2012, Yules finished writing his first feature film under the working title SOMA. It tells the story of a homeless drug dealer who gets unwanted fame from the internet.[5] The film was later retitled Impostor Syndrome. Principle photography was completed in October 2016.
