Without understanding, we can never hope to relate or inspire. Ann Asks is a docu-series that believes in people. The series hopes to use discussion and conversation to inspire change and remind the world that we are more similar than we are different. We also hope to inspire YOU to make changes, small and big, in your own home, community, and in your life. Change doesn’t always have to be big or grand. Sometimes the largest movements started with a small spark. Join us on this journey as we explore people, doing good, politics, beliefs, community, and life by having real conversations with individuals who are extraordinaire, and just like you or I. Starring Ann Benson Directed by Paul Howard Edited by Gareth Fient With the additional talents (and thanks) to Marc Wiercioch, Ettore Zuccarelli, Ian Buggatti, Matt Thompson, Fernando Zacarias, Susan Gordon, Brian Stone, Rommel Suniga
Paul Howard has always been interested in entertaining people and in telling stories. His professional career started as an actor when he went to the audition based two year theatre training program at San Joaquin Delta College. Later he transferred to UC Irvine where he received a BA in Drama. Paul’s interests in the theatre and in film started much earlier though.
Throughout High School, and before that, Paul was constantly writing stories, making films, choreographing routines (some where he danced like Michael Jackson), directing plays, and taking vocal and dance classes.
Paul has always been interested in more then just the one character he was cast to play.
The other characters and their motivations, the piece’s themes and message, and the audience’s experience watching have always, and naturally been a part of Paul’s thought-process and consideration. This skill has, in recent years, organically lead Paul to continue to act but to also write and direct more and more projects (which are often self produced).
Just in the last few years he has directed and written numerous short films, music videos, promotional videos/commercials, and political projects.
Paul believes that content, truly is king, but only with high quality and a fully committed heart.
Paul strives to every day be a better man and in turn, a better artist.
