  Film Experience
John Martin's film experience comes principally from a 90 minute feature "Forever Joy" that he wrote, produced, financed, directed, and edited. The film is about an elderly, senile artist, who after years of painting and struggling finally produces a 'masterpiece'. At first he resolutely decides never to sell the picture, but for reasons in the plot he sells it to an art dealer much to his regret...
