Schnepp started his career by editing many episodes of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast back before Adult Swim was Adult Swim. He then went on to direct the Pilot and multiple segments for the now legendary Upright Citizens Brigade on Comedy Central.

Jon then moved to Hollywood, California, to pursue further adventures in media. After working on many different projects in CA, including making the backgrounds for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Jon designed and created the band characters of “Dethklok,” and Adult Swim bought the show a few months afterwards. Schnepp went on to direct 34 episodes and co-produce all four seasons of the mega-hit Adult Swim animated series Metalocalypse. Jon directed most of the animated music videos for the successful Dethklok live concert tours. Schnepp also co-plotted and did covers for the new Dark Horse Comic Book Series based on Metalocalypse.
