series description

Austin Film Festival's ON STORY is a half-hour series that gives a behind the scenes look at the creative process of the country's most beloved movies and TV shows. The show is a mash-up of footage of screenwriter and filmmakers discussing their craft and films. Each episode is thematically paired with one or two short films, with an introduction from the film's writer or director.LA Times film critic Kenneth Turan says: ON STORY is film school in a box, a lifetime's worth of filmmaking knowledge squeezed into half-hour packages.
