Filmmaker Faraday okoro & The Writers Journey with Christopher Vogler
On this week’s On Story we’ll hear from filmmaker Faraday Okoro, a two-time Austin Film Festival alumni who was featured in Moviemaker Magazine’s Screenwriters to Watch list. His first feature film Nigerian Prince was produced for $1 million as part of AT&T’s Untold Stories initiative. And later, we’ll hear from author Christopher Vogler, whose landmark book The Writers Journey has helped countless screenwriters shape their scripts by using the writings of mythologist Joseph Campbell.
The writers behind Red Eye, The X-Files, Disturbia, and Shut In weigh in on the crucial elements for those psychological thrillers that keep you up all night; namely putting regular people into horrifying scenarios - and hopefully getting them out in one piece.
We're highlighting some of our On Story shorts that have played throughout the 8 seasons of On Story.
