About John Plutte

Jon Plutte is an award-winning filmmaker, media creator, exhibit designer and musician. His films have shown at the Sundance Film Festival, on PBS, and at exhibit and film venues nationwide. His honors include film awards, exhibit awards, and an artist-in-residency to develop a first-person interactive history game. Since he started at the museum, Jon has created hundreds of videos, helped make exhibits, and built cool costumes for his yearly jaunts to Comic Con. He hopes to improve his gaming skills as part of his work here, and figures there’s a basis for a feature film at the museum. Just a matter of time.
