Hey, I’m John Helde, I’m a filmmaker now based in Seattle, started my career in NYC. I directed a new series called CUDDLE we’re releasing soon: a quirky, young cuddle therapist sets out to change the world with the power of touch, but the hardest person to hug might just be herself.
Really happy with how the show’s turned out and it’s been fun collaborating with a team that includes our creator/writer Adeline Colangelo, producer Constanze Villines, and lead/co-producer Hope Shanthi.
We met a number of you when the CUDDLE pilot played Stareable Fest 2018. The fest was fantastic - great work and insightful presenters! This past month we screened at the Seattle International Film Festival and met other series creators there, including the folks from Short Term Rental.

Thanks to Stareable for creating this amazing community. Looking forward to getting to know all your shows.
