Bruce David Janu
Bruce David Janu founded Bell, Book and Camera Productions in 1999 as a small educational supply company, producing such books as Bring Out Your Dead: Bringing the Black Death to Life in the Classroom and The Constitution: A Cooperative Learning Approach. To accompany these products, he started creating videos and then branched off into the wedding video industry. He gained a reputation for producing stylish, documentary-like videos. And, over the years, Bell, Book and Camera Productions grew a very satisfied clientele. Due to the direction the company took in 2005, they gave up producing wedding videos to create feature documentaries and short video work. Facing Sudan was released in 2007, garnering two “Best Documentary” awards. A couple of years later, Crayons and Paper was released, which screened heavily on the Documentary Channel. 

Since then, Bell, Book and Camera Productions has produced corporate videos, music videos and short educational videos as well, such as “Bearing Witness to the Holocaust” and "Socrates: What is Water?"

In 2021, they released their third documentary: This Sacred Place: The Story of Old Lynn Concerts. Part concert-film, part history lesson, This Sacred Place tells the story of a long-running concert series held in a rural church in Pennsylvania.

Currently, Bruce is working on his first novel, Lilac Wine and has recently turned that process into a podcast. In addition, he runs an internet radio station called Vinyl Voyage Radio, where he hosts shows about K-Tel Records and Frank Sinatra.

Bruce is a history teacher-turned librarian and lives outside of Chicago.
