LIGHTMASTERS ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS THE YA STEAMPUNK-FANTASY WURKS OF D. A. METROV
I attended UCLA film school, then moved to New York City where I worked for ten years as a designer and fine arts painter. During this time, I spent a year painting in Rome, Italy.
Inspired by the early works of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, I wrote a 32 page treatment with drawings for my motion picture, SOLARBABIES. The treatment evolved into a 12-minute, computerized slide presentation. With the help of Mark Johnson [RAIN MAN], we sold the project to Mel Brooks [THE PRODUCERS]. The movie is still in distribution by MGM.
Some of my writing mentors have been Menno Meyjes [THE COLOR PURPLE], Walon Green [THE WILD BUNCH], Bruce Joel Rubin [GHOST], and Bruce McAllister [DREAM BABY]. My first agent was Jack Rapke, Head of the Motion Picture Department of CAA, now producer for Robert Zemeckis [FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY].
I'm now represented by Caren Bohrman of the Caren Bohrman Agency.
I've written, produced, and directed two, small feature films, DARK SPIRAL and LITTLE EDEN, as well as several short films. I have multiple novel, graphic novel, and motion picture projects in development--most currently, the FALCON LORD series, THE TERRIBLE QUEST OF THADDEUS PENNYBROOK'S KNEE-HIGH STEAMBOTS, and MACHINE OF GOD.
I currently live in Santa Barbara, California with my wife Maureen. Maureen has a real job. As a Doctor of Pharmacy, she saves lives daily. Together, she and I care for a wild and terrible black cat. Though the creature resides in a permanent state of sleep, it somehow manages to keep the household free of dangerous lizards and thieving field mice.
