BIO - Self promote! This is where you shine... tell us about you, your projects, your goals - what about this industry you love and would like to achive?
I strongly believe that filmmaking is a collaborative effort built on the synergy of all involved, striving to meet their individual goals by meeting the overall goal - a great Film!

Born and raised in Los Angeles California and growing up in the inner-city community of Watts, Joel is a proud alumnus the Film program at Los Angeles City College, a program that inspires guerrilla filmmaking. Joel has worked on many studio and independent films where he made it a point to learn and absorb all he could from anyone willing to share their skills and knowledge. He has worked in sales and marketing for companies such as E!, Summit Entertainment, Artisan and NBC Universal.

In 2006 he founded Think Dreamer Productions with its company tag line: "Think it. Dream it. Produce it." In the independent arena he has produced and directed various short films including 'The Becoming,' a short film which gained much popularity on the festival circuit and was featured in many of the top short film festivals. His first produced feature production was "Followed Home" which one of his filmmaking partners Joaquin F. Palma convinced him to produced as a way to distract himself from a broken-heart. That film went on to be acquired by Vanguard Cinema the following year. His second produced feature "According to Plan" was completed less than a year later and was picked up by York Entertainment. In late 2011, Joel produced his third Think Dreamer Production called "Prayers in the Dark" - the dark tail of a band of brothers fighting the demonic forces that thrive in the shadows of society - it's Constantine meets Reservoir Dogs. Also in development he has "The Collectors", "Committed" and "Take out the Wing-Man." Joel is also the co-producer of the Vision4media project "Beyond the Moonwalk: A Dream to Dance," a film based on the true life story of the young street dancer that taught Michael Jackson his signature move.

In addition to be an active filmmaker, Joel also serves as the President of Nosotros, the oldest Latino Art Advocacy Non-profit founded in part by the great Ricardo Montalban in 1970. And in the spirit of indie filmmaking, Joel always sharing his resources and networking with other filmmakers; a great example of this is that he is the founder and host of "The Power of the Network" mixer and screening series which takes place in various Los Angeles locations throughout the year.

Joel resides in a small community just 20 minutes outside of Hollywood with his two children Jennifer and Jean.

So Joel,

Do you know who runs Nosotros?  I've been trying to get information on obtaining fiscal sponsorship for a short I'm developing but have yet to get a response.
