Rather than waiting for opportunities to be cast in or write for, create your own opportunities to tell stories. This was the main reason for starting Where Monkeys Play, which is a production and management company. One of the current projects is an adaptation of the book "Timothy and the Dragon's Gate" by Adrienne Kress, published by Weinstein Books (of which I own full rights) for possible series. Among the several other projects we're working on are a documentary (in post production), a short (that shoots in August), an animated short, and a graphic novel series. And there are always several scripts at varying stages. Along with own projects, I seek out talented, passionate souls that just need a chance to be heard and seen.
