Wes Driver and Gregory M. Greene began collaborating in 1992 with the satirical sitcom pilot “Take My Life, Please”. In the years following, they together wrote and produced a trilogy of full-length murder mysteries performed to sell-out crowds. In 1994, they began experimenting in the soon-to-emerge 24-hour play phenomenon, successfully writing, directing, and producing five one-acts.
Wes has been a professional writer for over ten years, working in advertising and publishing. His screenplays have received recognition from some of the nation’s most prestigious competitions (including Chesterfield Writer’s Film Project and the Austin Film Festival). His script “The Valet” won Cinestory’s very first Short Screenplay Competition. Wes has also ghostwritten a best-selling political satire for Nelson Current Publishers.
Greg has worked in marketing and communications since 1999. He has written, produced, and directed promotional videos for a number of nonprofit organizations and is a key developer of the children’s video series JAM Films, having authored twenty screenplays, directing or co-directing many of them.
