Early Life & Career[edit]

Award Winning Director Tommy G. Warren,[2] born Thomas Glenwood Warren, was born in Poplar Bluff, Missouri[3] but grew up in Southern, Arkansas.[4] When Warren was 20 years old he bought his first motion picture camera. It was an 8mm wind-up film camera that he used to film documentaries and home Movies of his children. Warren[5] started commercial shoots in the late 1960s. He worked on documentaries in the 1970s.

Before segueing into filmmaking, Tommy was well known as a pioneer in the development of State and Federal correctional facilities. His concepts in land and real estate development also left its mark on the global community and gave Tommy the reputation he still carries with him today as a fair man, but an immovable force in business. He has interests in banking management as well as is a player in the music industry. He is a notable author of several publications, as well as magazine and newspaper articles on productivity, economic development, and labor and management relations, and has been interviewed about these topics with appearances on several television and radio talk shows.

Warren has worked with major motion picture studios, such as DreamWorks and MGM, as Production Design Consultant. His years of involvement with both domestic and foreign relations made him an invauable asset on such films as "Red Corner" with Richard Gere. He also produced and wrote several documentary films. In 1996 Warren moved to Hollywood to work on a film with MGM. By 2001 Warren had an office at Paramount Studios. During that time tommy co-wrote and produced the feature film *The Inner Circle (2005 film). The film takes a dramatic focus on the healing that one relationship goes through after surviving breast cancer and as Tommy says, "it is another story that needed telling."

Warren also, developed "StoryWorld" a Media and Entertainment World that's trademarked, involved with storytelling through all sorts of Media form with StoryworldMedia.com / .net and StoryworldTransMedia.com / .net
