*J.D. Mata director reels part 1 and 2* Your director for the new, decade!

I've made these SEVEN feature films with a VERY, VERY, low budget! I'm not complaining! As a matter of fact, I'm elated, cause I've been forced to stretch artistically! You "START, and FINISH, no mater what," is my motto! These films are evidence, that I'm the filmmaker model for this new decade! Studio films are being forced to make very low budget films. A low budget film to them, is ALL the money in the world to me! I'm just curious to see which studio will snag me first! :) I LOVE my life!! xoxo, jd

J.D.MATA actor reel 2

This REEL will get me the gig, baby! I LOVE my lfe:) xo

"What's up with all these new songs?" Aren't you working on a film:)

If you've followed me on facebook recently, thanks mom:) you've noticed a barrage of posts begging/pleading with you to visit my music, website! And, you may be wanting to ask me, "Dude, weren't you like a filmmaker, like fifteen minutes, ago?! Make up your mind, BRO, like you're killing my, buzz! Are you like a ROBERT RODRIGUEZ , or a BILLY JOEL, wannabe?!" heehee
I'm glad you asked! You see, before I moved to L.A., ten years ago, and took a vow of poverty, ACTING and FILMMAKING, my only artistic pursuit and first love was, MUSIC! I wrote and recorded numerous songs and of all genre's, i.e. tejano, ballads, rock, disco; okay, NOT disco, but you get my drift. So, now you're asking yourself, "..great macho man recording artist, why didn't you post all those tunes on the web, then?!.... HA! My case and point for this lovely narrative, there was NO Internet in the 90's. Well, technically, yes; but, not like today! So, if you didn't buy a C.D. at one of my shows, I DID NOT exist, musically of course, to the rest of the world. And, these past ten years, my focus has been film. Long story short, because you are so riveted with this post, thanks mom:), I have a huge backlog of unreleased music, that I literally had forgotten about. That's my story, and I'm sticking with it; AND, I LOVE my life!! xo, jd
My music is here: http://www.reverbnation.com/jdmata :) And, I'm still editing my new feature, A VAMPIRE NOVELLA!

JEFF CONAWAY as seen in my award winning feature, "from behind the sunflower!"

I absolutely LOVED working with Jeff! If he is able to get back into recovery, I predict he will be the next, Mickey Rourke! I love my life! xo, jd
