James Vasquez is an award-winning theater and film director, writer and actor who trained at the Juilliard School of Drama.  As an actor he’s appeared Off-Broadway, regionally, and on film and television.  He made his screenwriting debut with Daisy 3 Picture’s 29th and Gay, and received the Emerging Artist Award at both FilmOut San Diego and North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festivals.  His follow-up film, Ready? OK!, was inspired by a failed attempt in 2nd grade to participate in his Catholic school’s pep rally.  Ready? OK!, which stars D3P co-founder Carrie Preston, went to play festivals worldwide, taking top honors in Seattle, San Diego and North Carolina.  Ready? Ok! is his feature film directorial debut.  Both films can currently be found on iTunes.
