Additionally, del Monico is working on AGENT OF CHANGE (a short-form digital series) with the talented Shaan Dasani and director Jett Garrison, and has co-written TRIGGER POINT, a feature project in development with award-winning director, Hoang Duong, who completed a short film based on the full-length script. He is also revising several projects for Shake The Tree Productions, including FALLEN PRINCESS, based on the true-life story of a Miss Rhode Island beauty queen who lost her crown when she was arrested for cocaine possession.
del Monico has also directed and edited music videos for the band, Antigone Rising: "That Was the Whiskey" premiered on CMT (Country Music Television) and was nominated for an OUT Music Award; "Everywhere is Home" which also features Diana DeGarmo (American Idol) singing in ALTO; and "Borrowed Time" which we shot just for fun but has the deeper message that in life, we're all on the clock.
del Monico received an MFA with Honors (Screenwriting) from Columbia University, completing four feature screenplays during that time, two of which received Faculty Honors. Also acting as the principal editor on several independent feature films, he has learned a lot about what it takes to tell a story and to work collaboratively.
Previously, del Monico worked for the now defunct Actuality Productions in Los Angeles, reviewing and editing scripts as the voice-over coordinator for the Modern Marvels series, which airs regularly on The History Channel, and as an associate producer and researcher for Workaholic Productions, which creates long-form documentary programming for both The History Channel and the Discovery Channel.
He currently lives in Los Angeles, but is really just a heartbeat away from another east-coast story, however, with a nod to noir, del Monico has also started work on a mystery series based in L.A.
