Amy is known for her tireless pursuit of uncovering and exposing the truth while setting real change in motion through the medium of film. We are fortunate to have her here with us today to discuss her newest documentary "West of Memphis" as well as her previous films for which she has acquired world-wide fame. GUEST BIO Amy Berg is an Oscar-nominated filmmaker most well known for her 2006 award-winning debut documentary feature "Deliver Us From Evil". Berg followed up with "Polarized", one of the spotlight films for Al Gore's Live Earth Campaign, which was released in 2009. She also produced "Bhutto", a documentary feature that played at Sundance 2010.

        Great writing often benefits from limitations: be they of medium, budget, genre, etc. In today’s SFX-at-your-fingertips TV environment, writers creating sci-fi story worlds are free to let their imaginations roam. What do writers unfettered by constraints do when the limitations are removed and does this infinite canvas affect story, character or plot? How do they map out season arcs when plot turns could literally take them anywhere they want to go? Our writers take us along on their own journey from concept to pilot as they share the ideas they’ve discarded and the discoveries they’ve made in crafting their unique stories.
