ABOUT TAYLOR THORNTON
TAYLOR THORNTON is a filmmaker, actor, illustrator and giver of incredible high-fives from San Antonio, TX. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in Radio / Television / Film in 2015 and has been in Los Angeles carving a path in film development / production ever since.
Growing up, Taylor was always ingesting or creating some type of media, be it a movie, performance, or illustration. As an illustrator and avid sketcher, to this day no paper restaurant tablecloth is safe from his creative crayon wrath.
His early moviemaking years were spent shooting, cutting and acting in ridiculous satirical fake trailers to non-existent movies. His passion for all aspects of production and development has driven him to working on dozens of film sets and at companies ranging from Echo Lake Entertainment to CAA to eOne in both grassroots and creative positions.
In August 2019, Taylor wrote, pre-visualized and co-directed a Spaghetti Western commercial in Almeria, Spain, on the iconic Old West set built for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
This year, Taylor's animated pilot Jack Lantern: Ghost Puncher placed in the Austin Film Festival Teleplay Competition.
