Uri Singer, CEO
Veteran producer of the acclaimed movies ”Marjorie Prime” and ”Experimenter,” Uri is currently developing book adaptations such as Daniel Ammann’s best-seller “The King of Oil”, Don DeLillo’s “White Noise,” and Jess Walter’s NYT best-seller “The Zero.” As the founder of Passage Pictures, Uri started getting good content through referrals - which brought his attention to the fact that not all authors are lucky enough to know a producer, or have a friend who knows one. With that in mind, and with the ever-growing demand for original content, he decided to find great original stories from all around the world.

Carolyn Steele - Author of 'Queenie's Teapot' and 'The Queenie Chronicles'
Having had her book optioned by Passage Pictures, Steele is thrilled and in her own words, "a little overwhelmed." She said, "I'm happy that my ideas have found such a terrific home and can't wait to see my characters brought to life." The author is based in Lancashire, England. She has been a psychologist, a paramedic, and a truck driver, among other pursuits, before finding her niche as a writer and editor.
Daniel Ammann - Award-winning Journalist and Author of 'The King of Oil'
"My book is in the best hands imaginable. Since optioned by Passage Pictures, “The King of Oil" has moved in an expedited way. It’s amazing to see this project taking shape. It all started with a sentence on paper, and now my story is set at Universal with the attachment of exceptional talents like John Krasinski and Matt Damon."
Ray Kolasa - Senior Story Analyst at Universal Studios
"I’ve worked with Passage Pictures for years, most recently on their adaptation of "The Feed" - a project that started with a short story and was then adapted into a feature film script. This is a perfect example of how far good content can go when it's found by the right people. Now, with TaleFlick, many more stories will be found."
Niv Kaplan - Author of “Disappearance" and “Tracks"
"Since my book was optioned, there was a new edition published and sold. Seeing my book becoming a script and being offered to the top studios and A-list talent is very exciting. It is a dream come true. Can't wait to see it on the big screen."
Celeste Chaney - Author and Screenwriter
"A short story of mine was optioned by Passage Pictures, adapted, and is now a feature-length script, which is currently being packaged and sold. I would never have thought that I'd have the opportunity to work as a screenwriter and see my characters and stories on a screen, but I was very fortunate to make a personal connection with a producer. Now, with TaleFlick, other writers, their characters, and stories, can have the same opportunity."
