About John

I have been a filmmaker for about 25 years. I started editing short films on VHS as a child with my friends. I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a filmmaker in 1997. Most of this biography is an overview of my work as a filmmaker.

I have a BA from LMU in Screenwriting, and an MFA in Film Production from Chapman University. I have written, directed and produced 3 feature films. I Co-produced a bigger budget SAG independent film as well as decades of experience in film and video production, including expertise at film editing, production design, sound design, camera operation and nearly every film job. I have produced nearly 40 music videos and hundreds of videos for online distribution in addition to my 3 original feature films.

I have experience teaching at The Brambleton Learning Center in Roanoke, VA, and has produced many How-To videos online. 3 of my students, who learned most of what they know from John, have gone on to be great filmmakers, one award winning, the other two have produced feature films.

Overall, I have 19 years experience on movie sets and film production on close to 100 movies and short films. And I was educated from top film schools. I taught myself a lot of what I know, and one of my special skills as a film and video editor of more than 16 years involves using Final Cut Pro. I am also technically excellent in most, capable in nearly every film job out there: writer, director, producer, editor, sound designer, director of photography, composer, actor, production designer. And I have been using Photoshop for 16 years and have played music and been involved with art since childhood.
