Mini Bio (1)

Todd Thompson is a filmmaker who has enjoyed a career both in front and behind the camera in films such as "The Green Mile", "Rosewood", "The Waterboy", "From The Earth to the Moon", and TV's "Dawson's Creek".

His favorite role, however, has always been that of a storyteller. As a boy, he experimented behind the camera making short films with the help of his family and friends and his grandfather's 8mm camera.

Today, he has over 20 years of experience writing, directing and producing a wide range of commercial work for The Walt Disney Company and other well-known consumer brands. He also boast a modest resume of award-winning films, including "Time & Again" starring Academy Award-nominee Seymour Cassel, "Once Not Far From Home" starring Erik Per Sullivan, Skye McCole Bartusiak, Daniel Hugh Kelly and veteran actor, James Best, and "This Man's Life" starring Michael Rooker, Bill Cobbs and Betsy Brantley.
