about the filmmaker

 WRITER | DIRECTOR | PRODUCER

DAVID MELENDEZ

David Melendez is noted for writing, directing, and producing award-winning movies, as well as music videos for hip hop, Christian, and reggaeton artists. He has also written, directed, and produced television shows and nationally broadcasted commercials for various well known branded companies including Habitat For Humanity, Lil’ Anglers, Kid Casters, Seekin’s Precision, and Muvico Theaters. Under his production company, StudioHousePictures, David has produced several award-winning films that have been purchased for world wide distribution.

Though his slate of movies vary in genres (crime drama, romance, comedy, and horror), Melendez’s work tends to favor stories which explore the dark side of the human psyche. Heavy influences include the works of John Carpenter and Michael Mann, though King Kong, Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, and that slimy man-creature from The Black Lagoon has influences in his creative development.
