The movie went on to be nominated for a Cable Ace Award. After surviving some industrial video production, JP started work on A Tangled Web. It was to be his feature-length directorial debut. “We wanted something with the guilty fun of a telenovela,” said Thomas, “and though it took us -ahem- longer than we ever imagined, I think we actually have a fun picture. So here’s to a great cast and crew!” JP lives and works in Fort Worth, Texas with his wife, Lily, and son, Juan.
Ed Bird, Producer
From an early age, Ed wanted to be a professional football player or a filmmaker.

Since then, he has worked on approximately twenty independent feature films, as well as numerous short films, and commercial and industrial videos. Ed previously worked as Line Producer on the critically-acclaimed feature film Hate Crime.
