Joel M. Gonzalez Producer | Director
Joel M. Gonzales was born and raised in Los Angeles California and grow up in the inner-city community of Watts, he has worked on various 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. This made him move up fast in the ranks as a producer. In 2006 he founded Think Dreamer Productions with his first produced horror feature “Followed Home” which he produced on a 3k budget, that film went on to be acquired for distribution within 3 months and can be found on many digital platforms and box retailers today. His second produced feature called “Prayers in the Dark” was produced for less than 20K, and those film rights were recently optioned to be re-developed as part of a trilogy of films. Joe later formed Action Faith Media, a production company dedicated to producing content closer to his faith. It’s first film was “Crave: The Fast Life”, a faith-crossover film set in the L.A. Nightlife, that film has won over 22 awards world-wide and will be released in October 2017. His second AFM feature was “Riding Faith” starring John Richard Schneider and T.C. Stalling (WAR ROOM) followed up by “The Pastor”, which he produced with the Executive Producer of the GOD’S NOT DEAD mega hits Troy Duhon. The film stars Kevin Sorbo, Hector Echavarria and TC Stallings, and will also be release later this year. Joel is currently in pre-production on his next film “HOPE”, and in development of “CAN YOU HEAR ME?”, and “KUMU” which will star Auli’i Cravalho (Voice of Disney’s Moana).
