Mitch's work with Mom's Homeroom developed into his next job; breaking boundaries and innovating projects for the United States Department of Defense. Many of the projects developed for the DoD have also garnered awards and special commendations. His next-gen master story-telling and experience as a creative content producer (which encompasses writing, directing and producing) allowed him to develop interactive projects, video games and training videos for the government, the likes of which they had never seen. Gone were the dry, non-entertaining works of the past. Mitch helped deliver exciting, fun and entertaining projects for topics which would have been dry otherwise.
Mitch has the ability to deliver amazing content for any and all projects. He created VisionTrip Media Company with one idea; developing creative content to stretch the boundaries of entertainment. So far, the company has been able to make this idea a reality for many Fortune 500 companies, television shows, and government contracts; developing projects with budgets of less than $100,000 to well over $3 million.
Mitch Dean is Metagene Media... a veteran in the entertainment business who began his career after meeting Legendary Stunt Coordinator Glenn R. Wilder.
Glenn took Mitch under his wing, as he did with so many other stunt people, and he showed him the wonderful world of film-making. Mitch quickly moved to Los Angeles, where he took part in more than 80 movies and television shows, such as; Passenger 57, Blade, X-Men 2, 24, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Amistad, Titanic, Armageddon, Fair Game and Jurassic Park: The Lost World. At the same time he learned from Glenn's generous nature and work ethic, this included; always remaining loyal to those who helped him in his career, helping others break into such a hard business and attacking everything he set his mind to. Mitch's work ethic keeps him working long and hard on every project, no matter how big or small, to make it the best it can be.
"Your work on Seaquest 2032, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Amistad and finally the mini-series, Taken, prove your dedication, talent, and toughness. Gary Hymes has many great things to say about you and Mr. Spielberg seconds all of his comments and more."
A WORLD CLASS CREATIVE DESIGN STUDIO
After retiring from the stunt industry, Mitch moved back to Orlando and moved behind the camera, applying all he had learned from the above-named master storytellers. He began writing, directing and producing, developing the tactic of attacking projects head on to more than just stunt work. He gained a reputation for developing projects which were incredibly creative and satisfying experiences for both the viewer and clients. As his reputation grew, so did his clientele; MSN, Kellogg's, Sprint, Disney and The United States Department of Defense, became just a few of the companies who utilized his skills on various projects. He was also part of the team which helped create and define a huge branded entertainment project called Mom's Homeroom; an online show for MSN which had garnered over 72 million viewers, which in 2008/2009 was a huge accomplishment. His ability to lead a small writers room of five other talented men and women, develop ideas and turn them into creative gold, gained him the respect of the client. This allowed him to move forward, Assistant Directing the show and to become a Segment Director.
Mitch gained a wonderful reputation during his years working on features and television as an overachiever; working hard, being safe and friendly. This allowed him the ability to go to the greatest film school in the world; real film sets where he was able to watch some of the day’s greatest producers and directors. Due to his friendships with stunt coordinators and second unit directors, Mitch was able to spend his off days on set. He spent this time watching Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Bryan Singer, Michael Bay, John Woo, Gore Verbinski, Sam Raimi and Guillermo Del Toro work their magic behind the scenes. At the same time, he utilized these connections to get ahead as a writer, selling a spec script called "A Reason To Die," and multiple story ideas and spec scripts for television shows, such as; Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Star Trek Voyager, Superboy, Swamp Thing and Stargate SG1.
