David Christopher Loya is an award-winning filmmaker/director/writer who has created hundreds of productions for national cable and broadcast networks, Fortune 500 companies, public and private Ivy League universities, international NGOs, and charitable organizations. His unique "Conscious Filmmaker"® approach to production has been used successfully by educational institutions and prominent non-profits to raise over $1 billion in donated revenues. Loya's body of work has been recognized by 20 national Telly Awards as well as honors at the New York Film Festival and the Banff World Television Festival. A Los Angeles native, Loya says he grew up in poverty, in a violent and gang-infested, inner-city housing project, where his strong mother and runaway imagination protected him from damage and a hardening of the human heart. "Twelve years a slave" to the nuns, a full academic scholarship to UCLA comprised the lifeboat that transported him to secular freedom. Ironically, despite his abandonment of religious constructs, due to stubborn faith-tradition hold-overs Loya says that he views filmmaking as a vocation analogous to a priesthood-sans-celibacy. An accredited member of the Festival de Cannes, Marché du Film, Loya has traveled the world, forging alliances with filmmakers, distributors, sales agents, private equity investors, and producers, as he continues in active development with multiple feature film and television projects.
