Basil Shadid is an award-winning producer whose documentary and narrative film credits include Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning films. He loves to create entertaining content that engages audiences and drives brand awareness. [email protected] is a recent example. This daily one-hour episodic series provided the official voice of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

Shadid also believes in the power of story. To develop that craft, he created a series of writing prompts that eventually became the book "Screenwriter's Toolkit: 101 Writing Exercises." Previous projects have taken him through Asia, the Middle East, Europe, North America, and South America.
