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.
