Director / Producer
Award winning independent filmmaker Elmer J. Howard is a Maine native. Changing the world one production at a time is his motto and how he chooses which films to bring to life. His first short, Loving Martin, is based up a true story of love, loss, and hope. He has won 8 awards so far in 2019.
Entertaining has been his passion since he was a teenager making short films wowing and exciting family and friends.
Elmer got his baptism by fire into the entertainment world by landing his first job and first exposure by being a craft services assistant on the Disney film Flubber with Robin Williams. After taking a 12-year detour, Elmer returned to filmmaking in 2010 when he got introduced to the independent filmmaking community in Phoenix, starting his production company Thrive Productions that year as well.
Elmer has a passion and a gift for telling stories through a visual medium. Making a positive impact on his audience by getting them to think and challenging their beliefs while entertaining them, fuels his passion.
