Who are you and what do you do?

I'm Waneta Storms and I'm a screenwriter who spent over 25 years as an actor.

Is there anything specific you would like to share about your life or work with us at the moment?

I've moved back to BC to be closer to my ageing mother and had an opportunity to write on the 5th and final season of Van Helsing, for Jonathan Lloyd Walker. It was my first time working in "genre", as I'm normally a drama writer.  Also, I have finally dusted off a 1/2 comedy that is and always has been set in BC. I'll be developing the series with Adam Reid.

Is there any quarantine activity that you would like to share in particular?

I have 9-year-old twins, so my only quarantine "activity", before they returned to school, was to catch up on tv shows I knew would be informative for my work vs turning off all screens and begging the kids to go outside for a walk with me!

I am a young Actor with a background in tv and film production. At present, I am working mostly on commercials and independent projects. My goal is to make the transition into episodic tv in the near future.

Is there anything specific you would like to share about your life or work with us at the moment?

My main interest is to connect to the community and make an introduction as I have been away from industry networking for some time.

Is there any quarantine activity that you would like to share in particular?

I've spent a lot of my time during the pandemic creating a home studio and learning how to self-tape. I've also moved to zoom acting classes and continue to seek out new ways of expanding my craft from home.
