Out in the Street Films is the production company of Jon Raymond, indie filmmaker - photographer - writer - web designer
From 1970 to 1974 he studied photography and film at the Philadelphia College of Art (now known as the University of the Arts). He failed to find a place in the industry living in Philadelphia and without the means to travel or make films. Frustrated, he moved on to join the Air Force during "peacetime" in 1980 out of need for a job in what seemed like a 180-degree turn from his past convictions against the Vietnam War. This was an adventure for him and he enjoyed seeing the world as a flight engineer, until the Gulf War happened. He moved on to graduate school in Communication at the University of Delaware (1991 - 1994). This led him into a computer-programming career with employment in Los Angeles in 2000. There surrounded by the movie industry he fell in love again with filmmaking. He took on studio extra work and student and short film roles as an actor. He started writing screenplays and then began producing and directing his own short dramatic and documentary films with the advent of affordable digital filmmaking. Throughout his life he has done professional photography.
After a number of short narratives and documentaries, he produced, directed, photographed and edited a 90 minute feature documentary on healthcare reform titled, got healthcare?
He then wrote numerous narrative screenplays and started two feature projects with hopes of low budget funding. He continues to write feature scripts and blogs on the film industry topics.
