I have come to a place most with entertainment aspirations would dream to be. At the beginning stage of entering into this industry, I decided to create an animated project called Creepers. I was told by many it was an impossible task with no prior experience. I reached out to countless producers, directors, animators and executives in the animation world to guide my way, only to find dead ends. No one would help.
Then I met Mark &Jeanne Simon. Instead of shooting me down like the rest, Mark & Jeanne encouraged me. They put their creative minds and development into my project and made my characters come to life in a way only Mark & Jeanne could. But they did not stop there. They secured production with the DAVE School and produced a pilot which not only went on to win over 30 international awards and accolades but also landed a distribution deal. It has been 7 years since I met the Simons and I can say today, as I sit in my office in Los Angeles, that it was one of the highlights of my career.
“Mark was unbelievable. I created a show called Pondscum but we didn’t know how to fully develop it and pitch it. Mark’s advice and the samples he provided gave us everything we needed to develop our show beyond our original thoughts. We felt great going into our first pitch in Los Angles and the response we got was better than we expected.The insight he provided regarding what to expect. The insight he provided regarding what to expect was priceless. Not only did we feel so much more confident presenting, we were as prepared as a team that has been pitching their whole career and it showed. We couldn’t have done it without him!”
