Introduction
Ron Dawson is an accomplished screenwriter, director, award-winning video producer, speaker and author. He is the founder and president of Dare Dreamer Media, a boutique new media marketing agency and production company specializing in commercial video production. Although he's done work for the likes of Apple, Adobe, Kodak and others, his passion is inspirational and cause-driven films for small and large non-profits and worthy causes.

Social Media

His blog DareDreamerMag.com is a rich resource of inspirational and educational writing on the art and business of filmmaking and photography. He posts more personal yet poignant topics at ramblingron.tumblr.com.

Online Content Producer

As a producer of original online entertainment, Ron has produced or co-produced a number of other programming including Me2WeTV, Real Women Scrap TV, F-Stop Beyond: In Living Color, a handful of Dane Sanders‘ Photo Minute series, and the creator and executive producer of the first online reality TV show for and about professional photographers, “The Longest Day.”

Currently he hosts and produces the filmmaker's podcast, "Crossing the 180: The Filmmakers Podcast That Breaks the Rules", where he's had such distinguished guests as Book of Eli co-director Albert Hughes, "24" DP Rodney Charters, DSLR guru Philip Bloom, and many, many more.

Writer

He and his wife co-wrote ReFocus: Cutting Edge Strategies to Evolve Your Video Business, published by PeachPit Press.

Ron is a frequent contributer to both Professional Photographer and EventDV magazines.

Fun Facts

A little known fact about Ron: he used to dance on a professional swing dance lindy hop troupe in Los Angeles. Besides dance, his passion includes good movies, good television (watching episodes of “Lost,”, “Heroes” and “The Office” on DVD) and serving in his church.
