The Company

Operating since 2016, Dreaming Droids Productions is a small, privately-held Pittsburgh-based production company led by Paul Nandzik that focuses on film and television production, screenwriting, and directing.

A corporate sponsor of West Virginia Filmmakers Guild and Pittsburgh Film Office, we envision Pittsburgh, PA and the surrounding region as an Old Hollywood-style filmmaking hub where artistic vision and good storytelling is just as important as getting a return on investment.

Virtually all of our projects have won awards.



“Thanks so much, Paul, for including me in your “Forever Young” family. I had an absolute blast and had no clue you and your company are as Big Time as you are. My gosh, when I walked into New England Elementary that Saturday morning, I thought I freaking landed on a Hollywood set. Hugely, hugely impressive, and what an honor to have been offered Cap by our esteemed writer/director/producer! I hope I have more opportunities to hitch my wagon to your ascending comet. Thanks, man.” ­ Philip Bower, “Mr. Cap Keating”

“I wanted to take the time (now that I’m FINALLY rested) to write you and express how much I enjoyed meeting and working alongside you on the set of “Forever Young.” It isn’t often that you get on a set where everybody clicks so well together and gets so much accomplished in a few days.” ­ Eric Koval, Gaffer

“What an intense weekend. Being 1st Assistant Director on the Forever Young pilot was an incredibly trying and rewarding experience. Thanks, Paul Nandzik, for having me on board and entrusting me with so much responsibility over your set, crew and talent. Thank you to everyone else for making my job that much easier with your effort and professionalism. Everyone enthusiastically gave 110% and it showed. It was great meeting everyone. I hope to work with everyone again soon!” ­ Joseph Stammerjohn, First Assistant Director

“Playing the part of Ghoul Servant in Forever Young was one of the best days of my life because not only did I get to undergo the brilliant special­ effects make­up work of Scott Conner but also I was blessed with the honor of acting opposite Ruthy Stapleton, not to mention being surrounded by a number of highly esteemed other individuals. Essentially it was one very good day doing really creative stuff with a lot of bright artistic friends who I love.” ­ David Ogrodowski, “Ghoul Servant”
