JON ENGE

AWARD-WINNING WRITER/DIRECTOR

I write action/adventure/sci-fi. Though I am a Drama writer, life is funny, so I always inject humor into my stories. Or maybe I inject drama into my humor? My friend refers to it as "The signature Enge gut-punch."
The last 5 years I've been solely focused on getting staffed on my first TV show, here's a sample of one of my current samples.

ABOUT ME

After trying my hand at designing paintball gear, graphic design and even having a single, awesome night of standup (No, really. I killed.) I wrote/directed/produced a few short films, before my brother shoved me toward L.A. where I ended up running multiple web series, releasing 2-4 narrative videos per month (with a crew of 2-5) working on over 200 shorts, features, music videos, etc... I became a writer/producer/director/editor/vfx artst but am looking to take my skills to "the big leagues!" 

Now spend all my time... well, all my time I'm not editing to pay the bills or being a Dungeon Master, polishing my writing samples.
