About John Welch
Stormcrow Co-Founder John Welch first became interested in video production at the impressionable age of 10, making films with his friends mostly about action figures killing one another. Later John became schooled in film production and abandoned his childhood roots in the Midwest for Los Angeles. This was an exciting time for him. He did video editing and DVD authoring for a wide variety of clients: Sony Pictures, Disney Interactive, Fine Living Network, BET, and Warner Bros. Records to name a few.
Los Angeles, as it turns out, isn’t for everyone, including, but not limited to, John. He now lives the secluded life of a hermit playing his guitar in the penthouse suite of the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, sleeping little and producing and creating videos for Stormcrow Pictures. His pet puma is named Windsor.
(John is actually the Head of Production & Post for the educational content company Psychotherapy.net.)
