Congratulations to Esperanza partners Cognition

Recently, Writer/Consulting Producer Camillia Monet and Esperanza Productions teamed up with Cognition’s Brian Pope to develop a new television series. It was absolutely fantastic developing this show with Brian and we cannot wait for what the future holds.

“Cognition, which also offers visual effects and emerging technology, moved into space near Red Studios a few months ago… With scheduled completion in the fall, the expansion is expected to include a pair of 4K digital cinema finishing theaters, a full visual effects pipeline and creative office space.”

Veteran TV Writer and “Automatic Pilot” Author Bill Taub Praises Esperanza

Camillia Monet and Esperanza Productions recently collaborated with Bill Taub to develop a new television series. Bill was a joy to work with and we cannot wait to work with him again in the future.
“The Esperanza Experience! The several times I’ve worked with Camillia Monet – and her team at Esperanza Productions over the past few years have been a pleasure. Not only are they strong at the nuts and bolts of Production which is not my forte, they are totally supportive in helping bring passion projects to fruition. If you’re doing a television series, movie, web series, presentation or pilot you can’t have a better team to work with than Esperanza.”

Camillia Monet – Top Female Entrepreneur in Hollywood of 2015


LA Splash Magazine has named Camillia Monet as one of the Top Female Entreprenuers in Hollywood in 2015. We couldn’t be more excited!

“Camillia Monet, actress, writer, producer, has not been easily deterred by the male dominated entertainment industry. Having grown up as the youngest of five sisters and one brother, Monet learned very early that being female did not mean being meek or passive. Possessing a healthy dose of competition was key to becoming noticed in the household. Later, prior to receiving her Masters from Yale School of Drama, Monet began competing for the more substantive male roles including landing the self-titled lead in Richard III.

Once in Los Angeles and facing the reality of the high male-to-female ratio of acting roles, she changed her career strategy to include the entrepreneurial aspects of producing by attending the highly reputable UCLA Producers Program. That same year, she founded Esperanza Productions, LLC (named after her mother, Esperanza). During the first seven years of business over 20 projects were produced.

Lionsgate acquired her latest film, Devil May Call (2014)–the latest achievement in a remarkable 20-year career in entertainment. Monet has also appeared in front of the camera in such hits as War of the Worlds (2005), directed by Steven Spielberg, playing opposite Tom Cruise, and Seabiscuit (2003) opposite Tobey Maguire. In television, she played recurring roles on shows such as Emmy award winning The Shieldand Saving Grace.”

‘Devil May Call’ Film Review – Ambiguous, Maniacal, Suspenseful Horror
