Entertainment industry veterans, Dave Alan Johnson and Steve McBeth, formed Salt Entertainment in 2013 to create

and bring to market high quality projects for film, television and digital markets in the U.S. and around the world.


Salt focuses on content targeted for markets largely underserved by mainstream Hollywood, with an emphasis on positive and uplifting values, faith-related projects, and stories using humor, honesty and heart to touch this audience

at the deepest level.  Current market trends show a big opportunity exists for projects reaching these underserved audiences, and Salt is committed to bringing a high standard of quality and execution for its projects, to both serve this audience, and then cross-over with the same content to a broader general market.

Salt's newest theatrical film Hannah's Star to begin production 2018.
