Based in Germany, John is a writer and producer of features and documentaries. His recent producing credits include the award-winning short drama, ‘Fragile Storm’, starring Lance Henriksen, and the documentary ‘There’s a Hole in My Bucket’, with the participation of Peter Jackson, John Rhys-Davies, Billy Boyd, Park Road Post production and Weta Workshop.
His drama feature ‘Mujō’ (slated for production in Japan as an International co-production) was one of six projects chosen for the 2016 International Capalbio Future Storyteller Lab, with mentorship from Colin Trevorrow, director/writer of Jurassic World, before being subsequently selected to represent the Lab at the MIA International Audiovisual Market of the 2016 Rome Film Festival.
Another of John’s interests, the exploration of innovative story formats and cross-media technologies, resulted in the development of the German/US transmedia mystery series ‘Lostfriesland’, that explores interactive storytelling through the use of multiple media platforms, and VR technologies, immersing the audience in the story. The unique concept aroused such interest in Germany that the German TV channel NDR filmed the ‘making of’ the proof of concept teaser.
