The Screenwriter’s Notebook

Storytelling for me is about taking something fundamentally true about the human condition and exploring it through the imagination. Stories allow us to transcend time and place, shape our perspective on what it means to be human. When you enter a story, something magical happens, and for me entering a story on screen is where the greatest magic of all happens.
