About John M

I'm a filmmaker who focuses on small footprint, indie docs and branded content. I'm great with people, I love to interview, and I can handle all the teach and gear stuff. Going to school for a TV/Film degree, I was able to get hands on experience quickly. After school, I gravitated toward projects that I could manage myself, creating powerful stories with a small crew. Traveling for the story has become my thing in the past three years! I've worked in London, Italy, all over the US and Kenya. Music to my ears is hearing: "Here's the basic idea and story, now get out there and make something great." Put me in coach! I'll make you proud.

    John was great to work with. We hired him to shoot an interview, which had to be delayed. He was very accommodating and delivered a solid interview and b-roll.
