After learning the art of filmmaking as a child in the front yard of his family’s Los Altos home, Zachary Ready, now 23, envisions a career as successful as the one started in a neighborhood garage by another local-boy-made-good, Steve Jobs.

Two of Ready’s screenplays turned into films are scheduled for screening at the 2014 Cannes International Film Festival in May, which could prove a pivotal point in the young auteur’s career.
