Team

Glenn Owen

Founder/President

Glenn cannot remember a time when he wasn’t surrounded by the business, and pleasure, of the entertainment industry. Joining his father’s band at age 12 and playing drums, bass, lead guitar, and singing, he took the stage every weekend through his late teens. At 20, he set off for New York City and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and began a promising career as an actor. Relocating to Los Angeles, he discovered an even greater passion: the creative, behind-the-scenes side of “the business.”

 

Glenn came to realize that, no matter how successful a person or a business, or even a charitable organization, unless there is someone to tell the story, nobody will ever know about it. VentureFilms was founded to answer that call.
