Director, producer and screenwriter in Detroit, Michigan

About J.

I'm an award winning filmmaker. I've worked various credited and uncredited positions on over 30 productions ranging from stage and television programs for live broadcast and networks such as VH1 and FOX, produced several promotional and music videos for entertainers and rap artists, and have written, directed and/or produced 7 short and 2 feature length movies as well as having written 10 screenplays and 3 books.

Moved to Detroit Metro area in 2012. I have written 4 feature screenplays and I am shopping them around out in L.A., which is kinda difficult to do from Michigan. I also have been developing over 20 TV series concepts for the last 15-20 years. One of these concepts, Living Nightmares, is currently in pre-production in the Metro Detroit area and will be airing this year on Detroit's TV20.

Aside from movie production and screenwriting, I stretch my talents into other fields of entertainment. I'm an author of horror fiction and have had my work featured in several publications. I own my own book publishing label, "Blood Type H", through which I also publish my horror fiction. I also have a game company, "Gamemaster J", through which I published my first card game in 2013. I'm also an accomplished photographer, an award winning artist, a former FX makeup artist, and used to do standup comedy.

I'm hoping to network with many talented people here and, together, make a dent in the entertainment world large enough for the Hollywood machine to sit up and take notice.

    Film (Action, Horror and Western) Producer It's 1881 in south Louisiana... Murderous outlaw Seth Granger and his gang, Granger's Dozen, have terrorized the southern states for over 5 years. From their cabin hidden deep in a swamp, Seth spearheads a tidal wave of blood and destruction the likes of which have never been seen; threatening and attacking homesteaders, businesses, travelers and peaceful Choctaw villages across southern Mississippi and Louisiana. Local politicians fear for their citizens while local law enforcers fear for their lives. The only saving grace for most comes in the form of a "protection fee" paid to Seth and his men for keeping other bandits at bay. Payment doesn't always promise a peaceful existence, but it's far better than the alternative. An example is made of those who refuse the protective services of Granger's Dozen - and death without prejudice is the ultimate penalty. When Chief Red Bear and his peaceful Choctaw village refuse to give in to Seth's threats, the gang decides to make an example of ... Written by J. Brian

His only friend in the world is a young junkie who lives in the building among the other twenty plus homeless squatters.

Recently released from prison after serving 19 years for an attempted bank robbery, Nick Cavanaugh sets out to get the payday he was denied almost 2 decades ago by Ben Cahill, the security guard who foiled the robbery and has since worked his way up the ladder to become the president of the very bank he protected.
