John Charter is an award-winning film director based in Los Angeles. His visually driven, eye-pleasing lyrical style evolved from his first art as a surreal and impressionist painter. Themes such as duality, isolation, unrequited love, and karma are at the core of his work. Originally from the small Northern California town of Colusa, John grew up working on his family's rice and almond farm, where the sweeping landscapes and eccentric rural characters continue to inspire his storytelling. He started as a script reader for Rhino Films, where he honed a talent for analyzing screenplays. Charter has helmed numerous short films, commercials and music videos, which can be viewed at www.johncharter.com.
