Motaz Matar - Graduate 2019 MA Serial Storytelling

Screenwriting for me is a way of life. It always takes me to another level of understanding: humility, knowing that inspiration is not enough. It requires layers of hard work, commitment, openness, focus, and resilience – and of course creativity.
