Looking to break in or break to the next level of your entertainment career?
Are you an established artist looking to expand into producing, writing and show-running?
Have you created a great project but don’t know what to do next?
Working with John is an absolute joy, he is very talented and has accomplished a lot in his career, but he is always willing to help in anyone in need of his expertise at any level. I highly recommend him as you will be getting the best mentor out there.
We couldn't be more thrilled that John is on our team! He is an expert in his field as creator and his knowledge is invaluable. What he has taught us about creating, pitching, logistics, and negotiating in the short time we've worked together would have taken us years to figure out on our own - and these things are not taught in school! The best part - he TRULY wants us to succeed in this business! John has consistently proven that he will do anything he can to support us in selling our first episodic series. So much so - we'd like to give him a producer credit when that happens! Just you wait! John - you'll never get rid of us!
