Multimedia Creative Director/Filmmaker alt text
On July 16, 2017, John's newest film, One Heart-One Spirit, won "BEST INDIGENOUS DOCUMENTARY" at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival in Australia.


John helps clients with strategic multimedia design and specializes in video production for the web. He founded Pritchard Digital Arts in 2001, working with clients such as Sony, Williams College and The New York Times.

John has extensive experience as an award-winning creative director, filmmaker, online learning/web designer and enhanced eBook producer. He has developed commercial software products and provided multimedia consulting to Fortune 500 and Advertising firms such as BBDO, Young & Rubicam, Saatchi & Saatchi, Time-Warner, McGraw-Hill, Canon, Simon & Schuster, Bear Stearns, Citibank, and American Express. His multimedia career began in 1987 by founding one of the world's first interactive companies to work with Apple and Microsoft on cutting edge educational projects.

In 1997, John moved from NYC to Boston to work as a Creative/Art Director on three start-up companies with Internet giant, CMGi: InfoMation, Planet Direct, and the $100 million iCAST.com site for musicians and filmmakers.
“John and I worked closely together at iCAST in order to launch that massive site as well as create innovative pages and showcases for the musicians and, with the Film Channel, video and filmmakers. He was a joy to work with and did some extremely tasteful work under the usual web time constraints of needing it three days ago. He taught me a great deal about humility and his easy-going approach to getting things done actually got things done through compromise, yet not comprising the essential design and artwork to "dumb it down.” - David Greenberg, Director of Marketing, Ted Kurland Associates.

In 2010, John launched ETERNAL WAYS as a multimedia publishing label for educational and inspiring movies, books, music, and online training. Visit eternalways.com for more info.

In 2018, John is currently preparing a world tour of his latest movie project, One Heart-One Spirit. Visit createkinderworld.org.

For online training and education

We design highly effective eLearning programs and online courses. We begin by developing a detailed design strategy that is built around the scope and parameters of the project. The next step is to prototype the eLearning program or course to include the visual interface/web design that will integrate narration, video, graphics, animation, music and programming. Most eLearning programs work best with instructor-driven video segments that are less than two minutes long. It has been proven that shorter videos keep viewers more engaged.
