Joined 7 years ago from DC Metro
My name is Monica Mingo and I am the co-writer/director/producer of a feature-length film, THE COALITION, which is currently distributed by Magnolia Pictures and is featured on Netflix (often in the ‘Popular’ section), Showtime and The Movie Channel. I am also the writer, director and producer of three short films, one of which premiered at the 2011 Cannes International Film Festival Short Film Corner (WHEN BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE DO UGLY THINGS). I also produced the short film, COMMITMENT, which was presented at the 2012 Cannes International Film Festival.
I have triumphed over some big challenges in my life – including breast cancer and infertility – and I have figured out how to find happy. I believe this journey is helpful when I’m telling a story and brings a perspective to my directing that is unique. I spent several years in leadership for a crisis management firm based in Washington, DC before attending film school and now I know more than anything that being a filmmaker is what I’m here to do.
I have been told I work at this harder than anybody, but it doesn’t feel like work to me. I have a passion and drive for filmmaking that fuels me to work around the clock when needed and meet commitments made to my producing partners, cast and crew. I direct and produce with agility in mind – striving to craft true-to-life stories that reach the heart and soul of the audience with quality production, compelling visuals, and relatable dialogue. I am a finisher – completing what I start and working to create movies with big-budget look and feel while maintaining an understanding of value for service or product.
I believe that the breadth of my experience – whether in corporate America, as a wife, or as a cancer survivor – allows me to relate to many different types of people and environments and then bring this understanding to the screen. I am a filmmaker and I show you what I want you to see.
