J.D. Wilcox is a seasoned filmmaker with a career spanning nearly three decades. A graduate of film school in 1996, he has been a transformative figure in the world of cinema, working in both Hollywood and New York City. As a Writer, Director, and Producer, J.D. has been at the helm of over 15 feature films, television shows, and documentaries.
His expertise is not just confined to the realm of entertainment; it extends into the exploration of political and cultural movements. His latest documentary, ‘Adventures of the Conch Republic,’ delves into the fascinating and lesser-known story of Key West’s secession in 1982. This project aligns closely with the themes of independence and self-governance that are central to the Texas Nationalist Movement and the TEXIT Conference.
J.D.’s work offers actionable insights into the power of storytelling as a means to engage communities and promote political change. His experience in capturing complex narratives through film makes him an invaluable addition to the TEXIT Conference, offering a unique perspective on how the medium can be utilized to further the cause of Texas independence.
