JOHN BEHRING | DIRECTOR

welcome

Episodic television is quite literally a circus. It’s a migrating community of obsessed artists and skilled technicians who step into the ring everyday and perform daring feats that constantly exceeds expectation while routinely inventing new forms of magic and illusion. I serve as the ringmaster, orchestrating the highflyers, tightrope walkers, technical magicians, and even the clowns into telling a great story that millions of people will experience. The end result is, I’m proud to say, a movie . . . that happens to be shown on television.

On this site, I offer a small but diverse selection of samples of my work as well as a few complete episodes . . . I mean movies. In Selected Scenes I wanted to share complete story segments and sequences that are self sustaining, that show my love of actors, how I stage scenes, how I move the camera, in other words, how I tell the story. Brief as they are, I hope they demonstrates my ongoing quest to becoming a versatile, multifaceted, fearlessly ambitious director. . . filmmaker.
