Welcome to LICENSE 2 IMAGINE PRODUCTIONS (L2IP), the video production brainchild of David Diaz (and a group of professional collaborators) working hard to bring unique, socially mindful stories that both entertains and inspires audiences to think.

FUNDRAISING for my next short film 41 SHOTS is underway. The film is sponsored by THE NEW YORK FOUNDATION FOR THE ARTS (NYFA). Go  NYFA! We’re half way to reaching our goal. Please help if you can below.

41 SHOTS is a unique film that examines the consequences of assumptions by a group of white supremacists that leads to the [questionable] excessive force by a white police officer of a young, unarmed black man.

*ABOUT*
Over the years David has worn many hats above and below-the-line. His films have won several awards and two of his feature screenplays were semi-finalists in The Page and Creative World screenwriting contests. David attended NYU’s film program and is a life-long student of Behavioral Psychology and Communications. Early on he was courted by college recruiters for his skill to pitch a baseball, but nowadays divides his time between filmmaking, writing, producing, and pitching screenplays instead.

*MOST RECENT FILMS* (Trailers and One sheets below).

THE GIFT (2019) is proud to be the recipient of the AWARD OF MERIT by the BEST SHORTS COMPETITION 2020. The story is about a parochial school teacher who is forced to question her beliefs when she catches her student sketching an image of her deceased twin sister. The film is dedicated to all the little acorns (children) in the world.

LIE TO ME (2018) was recently selected by The NEW YORK LIFT-OFF FILM FESTIVAL. The film is about an unlikely friendship between a small town gay hustler and a war veteran who is on the verge of committing suicide after realizing he’s played by all of life’s rules, but has little to show for it. (Sadly, veteran suicides are up by 22% in recent years).

BEHIND THE BURKA (2016) was awarded The SOCIAL IMPACT AWARD and CREATIVITY AWARD by A Show for a Change 2017. It is a story about a chance encounter in a dentist office that leads to an opportunity for a Muslim grandmother to defy her son’s traditional ways by allowing her grandson to befriend the TSA agent who had processed and approved her U.S. entry documents.

HIRE ME to Direct! Socially-minded, satirical dramas and/or comedies are near to my heart. As is Disney-esque type stories for children.

THANK YOU so much for stopping by.
