Even as a child, Johntrae Williams was always one to put on a show -- whether they were puppet shows for family and friends, or assembling cousins to film renditions of their favorite movies (such as James Bond, Mission Impossible and Shaft). His love of cinema eventually paid off -- and in a BIG way!

However, it came with some hard knocks. For instance, Williams failed to land the lead roll in several school plays, but he turned his defeat into victory by learning to write, direct and produce his own. He would soon gain notoriety for his work as well as his performance. By the completion of high school he would have successfully completed SIX projects.

Williams went on to receive his bachelors of Arts degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. At graduation, he had a total of 12 projects under his belt and founded his production company, 3Actrical Entertainment, where he would develop and produce several projects, including “What It Means to Speak Life,” “Come Home,” and “Law and Disorder”, to name a few.

3Actrical would also undertake the independent project entitled “Guile,” starring Michael K. Williams, from the HBO hit series “The Wire,” and today Johntrae is producing several film projects on a major motion picture level.

Join us on Tuesday, July 19th at 7pm EST when this small-town guy (he's from Harrisburg, PA - MY CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE!) tells us all about his rise in the entertainment industry - and how YOU can do the same!
