John Franklin

John has had the immense pleasure and blessing in working with Greg in various forms from 1989 through today. They have both produced and been a part of countless productions that range from family memories, television shows to feature films.

While working in Dallas he gained invaluable experience as a producer, director and writer for many TV programs and large corporate accounts such as Texas Country Reporter, Texas Country Nights, Centex, Neiman Marcus, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Dairy Queen and E!.

Today, John travels the world participating in several productions for corporate, television and missions. Working on ‘Insanity of God’ produced by the IMB and LifeWay films was a life changing experience for him. ‘Destination Craft’ is a PBS show where John got to look into the lives of artisans around the world and for TLC he is following the lives of people facing a traumatic change in ‘Skin Tight’.

No matter what role he plays in production, John loves the chance to be part of telling the stories of life.
