Owner - Writer - Editor - Actor
As a writer, producer, web developer and owner of Unheralded, Paul Metzger is a modern-day revolutionary who is incessantly involved in the filmmaking process. Inspired by acts of heroism and selflessness, Paul is engaged by stories of uncompromising truth, realism, and redemption.
Paulís first dedicated attempt at filmmaking was in college, at a prestigious/pretentious upstate NY liberal university. His assignment was clear: to create a persona, (a lonely, hopeless athlete in this case), with dreams of greatness. This theme of an unsung hero is still carried through all of Paulís work. Possessing a vision for film and what makes films great, is one of Paulís strong suits. His selfless and uncompromising vision for Unheralded has been and will continue to be a staple for future projects and films.
