We had the good fortune of connecting with LaShaunte Wade and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LaShaunte, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Do your research! I started my catering company 11 years ago and just started my film production company in April 2021. I did tons of research, I saw who my market would be, the services I could provide to set me apart from other companies ,etc.

What should our readers know about your business?
I started a new film production company on April 2021 and called it Dark Creeds Productions. This was a dream of mine I had since I was in middle school and have now made it a reality.

We are a film production company that focuses on horror, thriller, suspense and Sci-fi films and shows and also offer a consulting service that allows us to help indie projects find the crew and cast they need for their projects.

We also help develop stories with a writing conceptualization program too. We also make commercials and music videos.

I have been in the entertainment industry on and off the past 16 years. I’ve always written horror. I judged for a few years at horror festivals, I’ve worked behind the scenes, I’ve been in front of the camera as well, so I’ve see all sides of the film industry and took a break from that. Got into cooking and made a career of 11 years and when covid hit and we were on lockdown, I made the choice of getting back into the entertainment industry again and started doing voiceovers for animations and video games. I do a lot of children educational work also using my voice.

That ignited my writing again and sparked a light in my passion to film again. Which is what inspired me to do my first short and have my first directorial debut with my short Let Them Eat and then start Dark Creeds Productions.

It’s been all great and the crew I have now makes me beyond grateful and excited to see what the future holds for us. The support is crazy overwhelming and the interest from people who want to be part of the team and help create my vision is amazing and humbling.

In 2022, the work from the family I have now and the new members joining Dark Creeds Productions, we’re going to show some beautiful creative stuff and I can’t wait!

Don’t give up on your dreams! I’ve had so many people tell me I can’t do it, why are you putting yourself through this and that. I tell them I can’t help it. I can’t go through life wondering what if. If I fail I fail, but I can’t not try.

Don’t let anyone stop you from doing what you love or want to do. It’s your life!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m a food person, So we’re going to all the spots I love.
