The Crew

J.J. Sicotte, Director – Editor 

J.J Sicotte paid his dues to the wrong industry. After spending a decade in the music industry, a move to Louisville, KY shifted his gears to film. His involvement in the development of a pilot for The Discovery and Science Channel made him realize documentary film was his calling. Determined to tell big stories about important issues, he hopes Death Is But A Dream will completely change how our culture thinks about dying.

Monica De La Torre, Producer

Monica De La Torre began her production career at Walt Disney Imagineering, where she helped develop The California Adventure Park. The experience she gained in juggling and coordinating many departments would later become invaluable in film. After Disney she operated a boutique record label and produced a slew of music videos for the labels acts. Driven to tell meaningful stories that offer a shift in perspective, she hopes that Death Is But A Dream will be a great resource for families experiencing the loss of a loved one.
