Warren Watson - Actor, Cameraman, Editor, Producer, Writer, Model career overview
I have worked in various facets of the entertainment and broadcasting industries for for nearly 30 years. I started as an On-air Talent (DJ and News Anchor) in radio from 1989 to 1991. From there I transitioned to a career as a television Cameraman, Producer and Editor, working on many national and international productions. My first love was acting, however I put that on hold to concentrate on my broadcasting career.
In 2006 at age 37, after joining a local theatre group and performing in several plays, something I haven't done since high school, I decided to get serious about building a career as a working Actor. Since then, I have acted in films, commercials, industrials and other productions over the last 12 years, earning my SAG-AFTRA eligibility along the way. I also started print modeling, appearing in ads, websites and brochures for various local, regional and national corporations.
My first feature film, “Christmas Ranch” is currently available on Netflix and has also aired on Showtime.
I'm also writing several screenplays. Among them are “Redemption Song”, which won First Place in the Baltimore Screenwriters Competition at the Maryland Film Festival in 2017 and "Car Trouble", which won Third Place at the 2018 Baltimore Screenwriters Competition.
"Redemption Song" is a drama about a Baltimore city store owner and a teen who destroyed the store during the 2015 riots coming together to make Baltimore a better city in the wake of the riots. “Car Trouble” is a dark comedy about a man who attempts suicide via carbon monoxide asphyxiation. Unfortunately for him he chose the wrong car. Contrary to the longline, this is an anti-suicide film.
My latest screenplay, "The Death Dealer" is another comedy, this time a mocumentary about a day in the life of a hitman with a unique specialty.
