Career
Streeter began his career in filmmaking by making several short films. Streeter's first short film Crickets & Potatoes [1] [2], a look at the absurdity of holiday dinner gatherings, garnered the 1998 Moxie Award. Most known for his second short film, Frank in Five (1999) [3] [4], starring featured Paul Winfield, Gedde Watanabe, and Zelda Rubinstein.

Streeter wrote and directed Cages starring Oscar Nominee Mako Iwamatsu, Zelda Rubinstein and Bobby Tonelli. The film survived a record breaking 4 weeks in theatres throughout Asia in 2007 and has since became the first Asian film ever to be purchased by the Hallmark Channel, performing a 24 nation release, reaching 20 million viewers.

Cages, a much more serious tone than Streeter's prior work, was shot in HD on location in Singapore, highlighted Singapore’s film star Tan Kheng Hua and introduced the acting debut of 10-year old Dickson Tan, who is visually impaired. The story is about A single Singaporean mother who comes face-to-face with her despised and estranged father of 20 years. A story of three generations, miscommunication and a bond created by a young son who is blind.

Steeter's current film Normal Folk [5], is a story about Asperger Syndrome and adult autism, that takes place in Normal Illinois.
