David M. Raynor is a filmmaker, writer, director, and producer. He is the CEO and founder of SPSCloud and the designer of these apps.
David has been making films for the last 7 years and in that time has won 32 International awards and been nominated 9 times for his short films. A number of his cast and crew have also managed award status (23 awards).
“This is why I make films,”David said, “Winning awards is recognizing that the cast and crew put in the hours for the love of film. This is very self-gratifying for me.”
In the last couple of years, David was asked to sit on panels with other filmmakers at Cannes and Sundance film festivals. He also sat on a three-person jury as a judge at the 2018 Bogota International film festival. In 2019, David was asked again to sit on a panel of filmmakers at AFM, in Santa Monica (November), and also at the Toronto Film Market (September) to talk about his latest projects.
During the years making films David often wondered why these filmmaking apps were either very expensive and or not user-friendly. “I couldn’t get the desired result I was after,” he said. So, he decided to design a screenwriting app for personal use. On showing leading filmmaking colleagues who were suitably impressed by the app, they said to him, “Why are you so selfish? You should share this with the world.”
David then decided to share the screenwriting app with the world. Following the success of the screenwriting app, David and his team have started developing a production app.
David said, “I wanted to develop a couple of filmmaking apps that are user-friendly and affordable for everyone. They need to be aesthetically pleasing to look at as writing and production is a creative process and can be frustrating sometimes. But by working on apps offering a calming influence you are free to open your mind and create awe-inspiring scripts and productions”.
