Bryan Thompson is an award-winning director and actor. Thompson’s acting career began in Miami in the late 90’s when he was featured in both local and national commercials, then later in independent films and working as an extra in Hollywood features. In 2005, Thompson began writing and learned from industry professionals to convert his stories into scripts using the latest software and literary techniques. This lead Thompson to pen several films which would later win awards at various festivals. In 2012, Thompson began teaching acting classes at L.A.T. Studio in El Paso Texas, where one of his students presented a short script to him for evaluation. Thompson liked the concept so much that he co-wrote and expanded the script, then co-produced it resulting in the feature length film called “El Sueño”, a 90-minute drama highlighting the plight of Mexican immigrants and the impact of the proposed Dream Act on one fictional community. The film won Best Feature at the Festival de Cine Latinoamericano and is now distributed by American Cinema International.
