On Story

A Conversation with Misha Green

Show creator Misha Green isn't afraid to push boundaries; the critically-acclaimed Underground, a historical period drama about the Underground Railroad that she co-created with Joe Pokaski, combined terror, modern music, romance, and thrills, breaking ground for the genre. In this episode, Misha talks about her experience as a first-time showrunner, having to say goodbye to a story before it's finished, and what she's working on next. Hint: it involves Get Out writer-director Jordan Peele.

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.
