Howard Clay – Screenwriter/ Director/ Producer  

Howard J. Clay, Jr. is an award-winning Screenwriter and up and coming Film and TV Director. Writing is truly his passion.

After experiencing success in his field in 2006, his screenwriting career was delayed until 2018, but he never gave up nor became discouraged. During those 12 years, Howard has lived an amazing and interesting life which provided him with a variety of experiences that fueled his passion for storytelling and film. “The best storytellers are the people who have lived and I’ve truly lived.” Before pursuing screenwriting professionally, Howard was the Founder and Publisher of a very successful, nationally distributed magazine.“B.O.S.S. Magazine” was the premier educational and entrepreneurial resource magazine for minority young adults and became a catalyst for Howard in pursuing his independent storytelling journey. However, even with great success with his publishing company, Howard felt the film industry calling him. Immediately after signing with a Hollywood agency in 2018, Howard moved to Los Angeles to pursue his film career. He started working in writing rooms for industry executives, developing movie scripts for indie producers, and completing writing assignments sent to him by his agent. To maximize his opportunity, Howard launched Howard Clay Films and decided to write, direct, and produce his first projects – three thriller genre short films: “Laundry Room,” “Bedside Conversation,” and “The Package.” The Package” went on to win several festival awards.

After that success, Howard was ready to film his debut feature. With COVID-19 looming, an ultra-low budget, and a limited crew, Howard persevered and filmed “Mile 19,” a feature thriller/mystery that went on to be the #1 Psychological Indie Film on Amazon Prime in November 2022. Howard teamed with other LA filmmakers and wrote the pilot episode for the sci-fi series, “Anita,” which is currently in pre-production. His portfolio continues to expand as Howard is writing and plans to direct a Christmas feature called, “Melody from Heaven: A Christmas Story” starring Kelly Price as the lead. This film is currently also in pre-production.
