As a theater director, Ms. Ward’s work has been described as “movies on stage,” in reference to the authenticity and emotional honesty with which her ensemble performs.   This same honesty translates into the work she does with her on camera clients. She is known for high standards of excellence and a tireless devotion to uncovering and developing her client's talent.


Anthony Miracola is an independent filmmaker currently working as a video editor for the ABC11 Eyewitness News team in Durham.  He received his Bachelor’s Equivalency Certificate in Cinematography after completing an apprenticeship with Film Connection in Los Angeles.

Anthony met Wendy as an actor studying in her Meisner training program.  After several casual conversations about Wendy’s desire to help her students market themselves more effectively, along with Anthony's interest in using her graduates in his films, they serendipitously booked their first show reel project.  That initial experience was so much fun -- and wildly successful -- that they immediately booked five more clients.

This is work they love to do, and they look forward to working with you.
