Introduction Filmmaker and screenwriter A.M. Peters intended to shoot a short documentary on displaced New Orleans musicians visiting New York City when the interviews made it immediately clear: there was a story to be told in New Orleans. With a knack for seeing the bigger picture on issues close to home, Peters gathered up a crew and embarked on a documentary with her signature study of human emotions, motivations, and culture in No Cross, No Crown. Peters' indie film banner, dinomonster films, develops and produces documentaries and feature films, as well as music and corporate videos offering a fresh style and perspective on characters and culture. Her produced scripts include animated shorts "Jack Quack (The Path)" and "Corporate Whore," that have toured film festivals and the comedy "Electronic Devices," starring Rosemary Gore. Peters worked as the Assistant to Academy-Award nominated director Nanette Burstein on the upcoming documentary American Teen Movie for A&E Indiefilms, and a pilot for AMC, "Autobiography" staring Dennis Hopper. She has also worked with other clients such as Smith Barney and Merrill Lynch.
