NORTH END PRINCE PRODUCTIONS
Throughout the past fifteen years in the entertainment industry, I've had the pleasure of working with amazing artists, including stand-up comics, actors, writers, directors, editors, DP's, etc. They have all become part of my world. My goal is to work with them again, and to spotlight their talent. North End Prince Productions will develop projects and showcase them on the silver screen, the TV set, and the web, while continuing to explore new technologies and avenues to display its work.
