We are JPNT Films. A film production company that has a
passion for telling stories through movies. We tell any and all
types of stories... comedic, dramatic, thriller, children's, etc. We
just love to create.
One of the things we specialize in is "on the spot" movie making.
What is that you ask? Well, basically they are unscripted and
How is that possible... an unscripted and unplanned movie? Well,
let us tell you that is is NOT easy! We can't plan ahead of time
any shots, any lighting, or any dialogue. We don't even plan the
ending of the movie. We see where the actors will take their
characters before an ending can be seen. Hard to edit, yes. Fun
to film, you bet!
"Game Plan" was our first feature length, unscripted movie that
have received great reviews and has even been screened at Film
Festivals. Read one of the reviews "Game Plan" received. Click
"Beat the Bastard Down" is another feature length, unscripted
movie that also received fantastic reviews! However, the
difference is that this movie was filmed in 32 hours. We got 5
stars! Read the amazing review by clicking here.
Oh! But don't get us wrong! We also do scripted movies.
"Welcome Home", a scripted movie, is FINALLY done. It took us
5 yrs to complete - very unusual for us. We had major sound
problems but after all was said and done, what a fantastic film.
We are most proud of this one so far. Check it out by getting the
video here. We think you'll like it. It stars many of our
Baltimore's own actors.
"Jimmy Traynor's THE TICKET" is our latest and greatest. A
103 page scripted movie filmed in 32 hours. It stars Fabrice Uzan
of Los Angeles, CA, Dennis Kinard of Los Angeles, CA, and
Vincent De Paul of Miami, FL (originally from Baltimore, MD).
These 3 actors flew here to MD to be a part of this production.
Now that's dedication! The movie has received many great
reviews and we are shopping it to distributors now. But you can
get your copy here.
So...Besides creating movies, we also love to work with actors -
all types... beginner, seasoned, children, adults, male, female,
green, blue...so long as you want to act. We hold
classes/workshops from time to time so new and seasoned actors
can get a chance to practice and perfect their skills. It's usually
only a 1 day class that lasts from 3-6 hours...all depending on the
"feel" of the group. We always ask everyone to keep at least a 3
hour time frame for us. You learn, you practice, you perfect, you
film... most importantly you have fun.
Well, that's pretty much the sum of JPNT Films. If you want more
details, feel free to roam our site and find out even more about
us. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact us

"Great People, Great Movies, Great Fun!"
Jimmy, a self-taught movie maker, started making
movies when he received his first video camera
"Betsy" at the age of 18, and it's been non-stop
ever since. He used to edit his movies using 2 vcr
recorders. He's definitely come a long way.
His passion for writing and creating, however,
emerged back in his kindergarten age when he
used to sit behind his mother's couch and make up
story after story and playing them out by himself.
In 2001, Jimmy was casting for small parts in his
movie A Movie. This is where Peechee showed
up at his door and as Jimmy likes to say... "she
never left". He gave her a small role in that movie
and in the following project "Game Plan" he gave
her the main role. From then on, they have been
making independent movies together.
Their biggest production achievement together
though is Lukas Traynor - born Sept 6, 2005.
Peechee is an actress and a model. She began
acting at the age of 4 doing commercials in the
Philippines (where she was born). She came to
America at the age of 10. She pursued a career
at first as a Paralegal and then moving onto being
a Preschool Teacher after having her 3 children.
The acting bug caught back on to her when she
signed her children on to be models but was used
as extras on the set of Minority Report, which
they threw her into as well. From then on, she
was hooked again.
After meeting Jimmy, acting was no longer
enough. She now co-directs, co-writes, and
co-produces with him. They truly are a team
made in heaven.
