After living nearly his entire life in New York City with false documents, burgeoning Finance professional Camilo Sanz receives a notice of deportation. Desperate for a solution at any cost, he obtains funding from a nefarious neighborhood loan shark, and dives head first into a fraudulent marriage with a relative stranger named Hailey. On her own personal search for meaning, Hailey must control her demons long enough to save Camilo by convincing an INS judge of the legitimacy of their marriage.
John is an independent filmmaker with over ten years of experience working in various motion picture mediums and formats. From his early days directing & producing music videos for artists such as Fabulous, The Roots, and many more – which subsequently garnered attention from MTV, BET, and YouTube audiences. This recognition paved the way for the #1 Advertising Agency in the World – Grey New York – to acquire his services in the Broadcast Production team. Instantly, John began working with national brands, seven figure budgets, and large-scale union production crews. Ultimately, he produced & directed commercials for companies such as Canon, DirecTV, Radio Shack, and Febreze. His experience in the advertising world opened up a treasure trove of production knowledge – studying A-list directors, cinematographers, editors, and CGI artists working their craft on a daily basis.
Ultimately, John’s passion for the motion picture medium has lead to co-founding a production company – LPZ Media – with his brother and Executive Producer Kevin A. Lopez. His first order of business was to write & direct “The Inquisition of Camilo Sanz”, a full length feature film – which earned a World Premiere at the Colombian International Film Festival. The film starred the legendary Alvaro Rodriguez – a Latin American Icon in the Spanish Language Film & Television industry. Most recently, John has received acclaim for directing several online documentaries for Cadillac & Heineken – culminating in commissioned work for NIKE’s ever-expanding digital presence of online viewers. John continues to explore ambitious ideas and themes that will hopefully entertain, delight, and provoke thought to wider audiences.
John has a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from IONA College, specializing in Marketing / International Business. He also has a post-graduate certificate in Sports & Entertainment. Undergraduate degree includes a Bachelors of Science in Economics from Stony Brook University.
