Raised in a hippie house in San Francisco’s Castro district, Monique Sorgen is an award winning filmmaker, who’s been directing since 5th grade, when she petitioned her principal to put on “Annie” at the Christmas Assembly. After studying acting & directing at UCLA, she worked as a television director’s assistant on comedies for NBC and UPN, where she learned to plan shots for single & multi-cam shows, and work on professional sets with stars. At 25, her comedy “Pants on Fire” (starring Cress Williams & Ronny Cox), got distribution on TV and airlines, and lead to a screenwriting career in film and TV. Later she made music videos that ended up on the Disney Channel and The Jonas Brothers’ Cambio.com. Her current short film, “Sorry, Not Sorry” (starring Wallace Langham, Jessica Oyelowo, and M. Emmet Walsh) is touring the world at prestigious comedy festivals and Oscar qualifiers. Her proudest moment is directing 3 reality series in the Philippines, where she led a crew of 40 non-native-English speakers, while braving conditions that included no hot-running water, intermittent electricity, deadly reptiles, and bugs that burrowed under the skin. There, she proved she could do great work and thrive in the most challenging environments. Her shadowing experience includes Pamela Fryman, Kim Friedman, and Lesli Linka Glatter. Currently she is in the Sony Television Directors Program.
