About John

Nothing Gained until Ventured....

To me film is the fabric of the American Dream that has beginning to fade into stories of defeat, corruption and self-destruction. When I was a boy I remember watching movies that gave me a glimpse into a life I could not only dream of but mimic and become in reality. Twenty years through corporate America I realized that all the professional ventures I have embarked on, both successful and non-successful, we're a copy of the character's I have grown to love as a child. At that moment I realized that my purpose was not to play a role in life, but to create a pathway of inspiration for other's in hopes of improving people's lives with Film.

As we say in Texas, let us help you 'PUT A HANDLE' on your vision and make it a reality.

I look forward to working with you!

Together with his audible interface guidance system, DOT, we are taken to a post world war galaxy far away from what we know. More importantly this story will take the audience to a place that has been lost in American cinema in recent years, a place to dream, a time to lose yourself in your own imagination and DREAM of what awaits the world we live in. Second Floor Pictures and Common Era Films are proud to present the Star Wars of the 22nd century, not in similar story line but in originality and talented film-making. Welcome to DREAM OF ME – A No Budget Science Fiction Film Made by One Dude.
