Peter Herro was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Illinois. His passion for film making began at an early age when he found the family video camera and started recording everything. "It was then that I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life." Over time, the family videos evolved into full-length movies, as he was able to practice and further develop his craft.
"I have always had an over-active imagination, but no way of showing people my thoughts. I knew film making was the only place where this was a possibility."
After schooling, Peter moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue film making. He obtained his first internship in 2002 at Spyglass Entertainment. Later that year, Spyglass hired him full-time. In 2004, he was offered a job at Warner Bros. Pictures, where he gained much knowledge throughout a long and healthy five-year theatrical marketing career.
"I have managed to see plenty of movies get a huge box office return based solely off of an amazing marketing campaign."
Not only does he have a clear vision and passion for film making, but when it comes to taking the final product and gaining viewer interest, he has a thorough understanding of the madness of a sales pitch. "I create quality, entertaining products that are propelled and packaged to sell by stellar marketing campaigns."

My fascination for entertainment started at the age of 6 when I joined acting classes, and participated in numerous school plays and talent shows. During eighth-grade, my interest shifted from performance to writing and production. This change came when I received top grades in a creative writing class with the teacher ultimately submitting my final project to Seventeen Magazine. Throughout high school, I studied journalism and joined the school newspaper to write for the Arts & Entertainment section, writing about TV shows, movie reviews and school theater activities. During high school and college, I participated behind-the-scenes in set design and production with plays such as Shakespeare Sonnets, The Breakfast Club and South Pacific. I was also an extra for Central Casting where I did work on shows Any Day Now and Boston Public.
In 2005, I attended UC Berkeley earning a Film Studies degree in 2007. Film History, Criticism, Animation, Melodrama and Hitchcock were a few courses I took under honorable mentors Marilyn Fabe, Russell Merritt and Amy Rust who profoundly influenced my screenwriting skills. I wrote my first script, The Promise, under professor J. Mira Kopell, who has written for HBO and PBS as well as Los Angeles and New York based producers. Her guidance and direction taught me how to vividly translate my creative imagination onto paper.
In 2009, I moved to Los Angeles and met Peter Herro where we immediately began developing WTF! Peter and I would meet after long 12 hour-days to write and create these scary thoughts that are about to be splatted on screen.
Currently, I’m attending UCLA Screenwriting courses under Tom Lazarus (Stigmata – Writer) helping me revise my current story on conversion therapy and developing my next feature-length horror flick, (of course!)
Adam Buchalter is a Los Angeles-based writer, who wrote WTF! along with Peter Herro and Christopher Centanni.
Adam first delved into the world of screenwriting in second grade, where he wrote an eight-part cinematic series of science fiction scripts in his Mead Composition books. The unreleased franchise was called When Aliens Attack, and it revolved around dangerous extra-terrestrials invading an amusement park. Shockingly, Adam’s seminal writing project still has not found a home at a major studio.
Adam currently has several television and film projects in the works, and he looks forward to curating more nightmares for audiences worldwide as he delves deeper and deeper into the world of horror.
