demo reel film canister RESUMÉ



I'm Don Myers, an all around creative guy from Cincinnati, Ohio now living in Los Angeles, California in the Sunset Strip area. As a content creator I am a generalist.  I don't do one thing perfectly I do a lot of things pretty well. It is like having a movie studio inside my head.


Shia LabeoufI've done 3D and 2D animation for all the major studios, even RKO, and I didn't know RKO  was still a thing!  For twenty years I've built, textured, lit and animated hard surface models, environments and special FX.  The best movie I worked on was Holes for Disney directed by Andy Davis.  A piece of "magical realism" (think "The Simpsons"), it is a Disney movie featuring an interracial murder and a revenge killing!  I think it is the best live action movie the studio ever released.  Other good movies include The Guardian (Disney),, and Defiance (Paramount).  I also worked on some of Hollywood's biggest flops like Red Planet (WB) and Pluto Nash (WB).  I think more people saw my demo reel of Pluto Nash than saw the real thing!

I also do logos, architectural visualization, website design and more.


HBO miniseries I was on the team that won an Emmy in 2010 working for Spielberg/Tom Hanks on The Pacific (HBO).  I was in charge of 3D modeling and the creation of lots of background vehicles.  I also did some compositing and animated way too much tracer fire.  Boy, everybody sure shot flaming bullets a lot in WWII.  Since that gig, sadly, a lot of work has fled Hollywood for places like Georgia, Canada, London and even tiny New Zealand. They all give controversial tax breaks to productions that often don't even benefit their economies.   I don't blame the studios for trying to save money. DVDs are not selling and the profit on a feature film is 5%. I don't blame people in other countries for wanting to do this fun, challenging work. I blame our government at all levels for letting it happen.  They only started to try to keep business in LA after the tax base had taken a major hit. Too late!


scientology gold baseI am one of the main investigators and protesters of the Church of Scientology in Los Angeles.  My photographs and videos are used on some of the most controversial Wikipedia pages the Church has tried to delete.  They are the only organization banned from editing Wikipedia.  My work has also been seen on newscasts as far away as Australia and on European documentaries, plus all three seasons Leah Remini's Emmy winning A&E show "Scientology & the Aftermath."  I also helped startup up a Youtube channel called for Scientology whistleblowers to be interviewed telling stories no other media would touch. It now has over 25,000 subscribers, over 10 million views, and has spawned other websites and bloggers giving the Church of Sci still more people to fight. My main Scientology channel on Youtube has been taken down TWICE by spurious complaints by the Church which advertises heavily on Youtube. My main website ANGRYGAYPOPE.COM has been attacked via DDOS by the Church literally billions of times so you know it bothers them.


the bodice ripper comedy scriptI created several funny comedy videos before I came to Los Angeles such as "Nick Dixon Private Eye."  It won several awards and was shown here in LA by the American Cinematheque at the Raleigh Studios Chaplin Theater.  Many of my Scientology videos are also very funny.  And a I wrote a hilarious feature length script "The Bodice Ripper."  It is the story of a breast crazed Victorian hypnotist who gains the power to control minds but loses his own.  One talent manager told me the script read "like a fifth draft."  I said "it is!"


west hollywood computer repairI've fixed computers in LA for twenty years and have built about forty Windows machines from scratch. I can come to clients or they can drop their computers off at my place. More about this at my website which I wrote myself  I also blog about technology there.
