John Alan Thompson is a majestic steed whose noble gaze is triumphant when trained upon the sun or a 300 watt light bulb.
He credits his acute sense of color and light to being flung from the back of a speeding pickup truck at the tender age of thirteen. When he regained consciousness, he knew he wanted to be a filmmaker.
Most recently he directed comedy sketches for the truTV series RACHEL DRATCH’S LATE NIGHT SNACK and viral social justice short doc ONE FAMILY for the BRUCE LEE FOUNDATION.
