Jaume was born in Sant Iscle de Vallalta, a small town in the province of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

At the age of 18, Jaume moved to Los Angeles, with limited resources and a basic knowledge of the English language, determined to become a film director. He attended Columbia College and began working on the side as an editor.

Jaume was influenced by directors such as David Fincher, Spike Jonze and Mark Romanek and decided that instead of shooting a short film for his graduation project he would do a music video. With the money he had saved and his knowledge of post-production he shot a music video for an unknown local band which caught the eye of some production companies. Before he even graduated film school he was signed as a music video director with "The End".

After shooting a few music videos the production company gave him some money to shoot a couple of spec spots. He came back with a two and a half minute short for "AOL". It was featured in the Saatchi & Saatchi new directors' showcase at Cannes that year.

From there Jaume's career skyrocketed and he shot commercials for Playstation, Budweiser, Mastercard, Miller-Lite, Pontiac, Smirnoff Ice, Renault, Verizon and 7UP; working with such agencies as McCann-Erickson, J. Walter Thompson, BBDO, and TBWA Chiat Day.

Jaume's surreal and often dark imagery quickly caught the eye of Producer Joel Silver who hired him to direct "House of Wax" in 2005. In 2007, his love for soccer took him back to Spain to shoot "Goal II: Living the Dream". In 2009 he opened, "Orphan", to critical and financial success. His latest feature "Unknown", starring Liam Neeson, snagged the no 1 box office spot in its opening weekend.
