The Film Received Rave Reviews and Won 3 Awards at THE WIDESCREEN FILM AND MUSIC VIDEO FESTIVAL at the AMC Cinemas. Best Director, Best Editor, and Best Musical Score.

    Last year David also Co-Starred in “TEDDY BEAR” A film that won the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL, and BEST FILM at the FRENCH, GREEK, and POLISH Film Festivals.

    Previous to that he Co-Starred in “DRAGONWOLF” a film shot in Thailand.

    Born in the UK, David became a child singer, dancer, and actor, when his family moved to the USA, and he appeared in 150 TV shows and 12 Broadway shows from age 13 to 16. At 17 David was the very young Baby John, in the original Broadway show “WEST SIDE STORY”. He was A-Rab in the film version of “WEST SIDE STORY”, that won 10 Academy Awards and established David as a teenage star.

    David teamed up with Paul Simon (Simon and Garfunkle) in a singing duo “David Winters and the West Siders”. David and Paul wrote the songs with David singing lead. These records can still be bought today on the internet.

    Just after “WEST SIDE STORY” David opened up a dancing school and taught many stars such as
    Ann-Margret, Raquel Welch, Richard Chamberlain, etc.

    He became Elvis Presley’s personal choreographer and choreographed 4 Elvis Presley films, the 1st being “VIVA LAS VEGAS”. He also choreographed 5 films with Ann-Margret and the highly acclaimed Academy Award Winner “A STAR IS BORN” starring Barbra Streisand.

    David with his 1st of 6 Emmy Nominations
    David appeared as a guest star and choreographed the “Nancy Sinatra Special” with Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin for which he received his first Emmy nomination for excellence in television.

    The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences wanted to acknowledge David’s contribution, but had no category, so they created one for David “Outstanding Achievement in Television”.

    Next year the Academy also wanted to nominate David for an Emmy for his TV Special “The Ann Margret Show”. So they created an “Outstanding Choreography” category, and nominated David. One of David’s proudest achievements in his entire life, is that because of him, there was an Emmy category created for Excellence in Dance on TV that still exists today.
    Emmy Award for “Outstanding Achievement in Choreography”.

    David then guest starred and choreographed “Grace Kelly’s Monaco” with Her Serene Highness Princess Grace Kelly.

    He choreographed the first Rock TV series “Shindig”, and was choreographer/dancer/singer on “Hullabaloo” the Rock/Roll series where he created the world wide dance craze, “The Jerk”.

    David directing the Emmy Award Winning TV series “THE MONKEES”

    David staged and directed 2nd Unit on the film “The Island of Doctor Moreau” starring Burt Lancaster and Michael York. David then set his sights on directing and producing.

    His first directing assignment was the 2 year Emmy Winning TV series “THE MONKEES” where he actually created what we now call music videos. He also created, staged and produced the Monkees World Tour. The opening act for the Monkees was a young man then unknown to the world, by the name of Jimi Hendrix.

    David has Produced/Directed over 80 features and over 200 TV shows and films that include

    David directs Kirk Douglas in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

    ONCE UPON A WHEEL starring Paul Newman

    DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE starring Kirk Douglas

    Next he Created, Directed and Choreographed the Alice Cooper Rock and Roll Spectacular World Tour “WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE”. The show’s huge success inspired him to make a film of it, and to release it in 1,000 cinemas in the USA through his own Company. Something no one else has ever done to this day.

    David then Co-Starred, Directed, Produced, and Co-Wrote the Multi Award Winning motion picture “THE LAST HORROR FILM”. For this film he won the Paris Film Festival Award , the Los Angeles Golden Scroll Awards, the Sitges Film Festival Award, and a nomination by the Hollywood Academy of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror as the Best Film Of The Year, but lost out to Mel Gibson’s “The Road Warrior”.

    Mr. Winters partnered with Universal/MCA and GUBER/PETERS Productions to Create, Produce and Direct the esoteric video, “YOGA MOVES”.

    Then with his good friend Hugh Hefner, owner of Playboy Magazine he Created, Produced, Directed, Choreographed the music video “GIRLS OF ROCK AND ROLL” which become the highly successful long running Las Vegas show of the same name.

    David choreographed the “T.A.M.I. SHOW” the first concert movie ever made with a cast that included The Rolling Stones, Diana Ross & The Supremes, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Smokey Robinson and the Miracle, and every other major act of the day. In 2006, the “T.A.M.I. SHOW” was voted by the US congress to be installed in the National Registry as a film treasure, and to be preserved for ever. David decided to produce and direct a film called “THAT WAS ROCK”. He took Chuck Berry into a studio and created wraparounds and intros to the “T.A.M.I. SHOW” and to the “TNT SHOW” another film concert. In it’s review of “THAT WAS ROCK”, Rolling Stone Magazine, the Bible of rock and roll, is quoted as saying “THE BEST ROCK MOVIE EVER MADE!”

    After this, David directed “THRASHIN”. A modern West Side Story on skateboards. He asked the film’s financiers on two separate occasions to let him cast an unknown at the time Johnny Depp to star in the film, but they refused saying “this kid will never make it”.

    So he found another unknown young actor Josh Brolin, and cast him as the lead. Recently Josh Brolin was nominated for the Academy Award, as Best Supporting Actor for his performance with Sean Penn in “MILK”. He was also the star of the Academy Award Winning film “NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN”, two Oliver Stone films “Wall Street 2” and “W.”, as well as “Men in Black 3”.

    For the soundtrack of “THRASHIN” David also discovered some unknown musical groups and introduced them in the film. They are The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Meatloaf, The Bangles, and All The Fine Young Cannibals, who all went on to have No. 1 worldwide hits. “THRASHIN’” is the favorite cult film for skateboarders today.

    Because of the Johnny Depp incident David decided not to make any more films that he did not totally control himself. In the next 8 years David produced, directed, financed, and distributed 48 films through his own companies West Side Studios and A.I.P Studios.

    NIGHT TRAP won the first prize “Gold Award” at the Houston World Fest International Film Festival. The film stars Robert Davi, Michael Ironside, and Margaret Avery, Academy Award nominee for the Steven Spielberg film “The Color Purple”.

    In Romania he filmed the pilot “Star School”, a musical TV series which won First Prize at the world famous Montreaux TV Festival.

    In 1998 he founded, Equator Films, a UK Production/Distribution Company that he listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1999. His expansion plans included buying Isleworth Studios, where the Academy Award winning film THE AFRICAN QUEEN was shot. Equator then purchased Handmade Films, the most prestigious UK Production/Distribution Company for 14.5 million pounds. Equator’s name was then changed to Handmade Films PLC.

Also starring in the film is John Rhys-Davies, star of all 3 “LORD OF THE RINGS” films, and “INDIANA JONES”.

    All U.S.A. rights to “THE KING MAKER” were purchased by SONY STUDIOS, and UNIVERSAL bought foreign territories. With CHINA FILM, in China, it had a very long theatrical run. The film played theatrically in Thailand, where it received 4 Thai Academy Award nominations and won The Star Entertainment Award. It won the Silver Ten Award as Outstanding Film at the Film Festival in Mumbai, India. In Russia it sold over 175,000 DVD’s. It is the only Thai Film ever bought by a Major Hollywood Studio, and sold in 36 countries, making it the most successful Film ever made in the history of Thai Cinema.

    David is very proud and honored to be the narrator of The King of Thailand’s personal DVD project “THE ROYAL PROJECT”.

    After this Mr. Winters co-starred in the film “HANUMAN THE WHITE MONKEY WARRIOR”.

    He can currently be seen on Hallmark’s TV in the mini series “BLACKBEARD” as Silas Barber.

    Mr. Winters sees a great future in the USA, European, and Asian entertainment industry and spends a great deal of his time traveling between these continents. Although he holds both U.S.A. and British citizenship, he proclaims to being a citizen of the world.

    “DANCIN ‘- IT’S ON !”
    Totally Amazing…Great Movie !……Must see over and over and again and again !!
    The crowd in the theater went Wild !! This Movie is Magic !! .........BEAT Magazine, Elvis Aggy

    Dancin' - It's On! is his latest and best film of his career.

    Dancin' It's On!. A young person's film made by actor, dancer and director David Winters has a great deal going for it. For a film that follows a tradition of young rich girl falling for poor boy romances, Dancin displays a great deal of imagination.

    ‘DANCIN' IT'S ON!’ is a delightfully engaging Film; a modern day 'Dirty Dancing'. Most admirable was how the Director stayed true to this BEAT throughout! It is impossible not to lose oneself in the exuberance of this cinematic experience. LOVED “DANCIN' IT'S ON!” KaycieLee IMDB
