Writer Biography – Kristian Day

3b8d06f86a headshot

Kristian Day grew up in America’s heartland. At age 21 he broke in to the film industry as a foley artist and sound designer. By age 28 he started working as a production coordinator on major unscripted shows and slowly moved into commercials and branded content as a production manager and first assistant director.

At age 30, he couch surfed Los Angeles for 30 days with random strangers he had never met before. At the end of the 30 days, a feature in the Des Moines Register was written documenting both his 30 days surfing and then opening up his house to fellow travelers. Cityview Magazine then invited him to write a monthly column about the random travelers who crash at his home while on the road.

Today, he writes a regular column for Cityview as well as 2-3 cover stories a year. Kristian continues to work in the film industry commuting to New York and Los Angeles from the midwest.

Writer Statement

I am a firm believer that a writer is not capable of telling every story. But it’s our responsibility to be honest and tell every single one of our own.

Writer Biography – Mary Hasavari

 

My name is Mary N. Hasavari. I’m a filmmaker with an
international background which includes Norway, Thailand, and
Iran. I explore themes rooted in identity and belonging. At the age of 16, I made my first short film, a documentary about Norwegian Black-metal kids. After graduating with a BA in marketing and an MFA from London Film School, my film Before Spring earned me five nominations at five different film festivals, among them, Oscar-qualifying Bogota Short Film Festival and I received Honorable Mentioning at The Isle of Wight International Film Festival. In 2018 I went through a shadow program at ABC Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recently, I received a Talent Development grant from The Norwegian Film Institute and my feature screenplay was in the final round of selection for the 2020 Sundance development track. I’m looking forward to creating groundbreaking films and series with likeminded people.
