Don't miss Stephany Folsom on Scriptchat, Sunday July 13, 2014 at 5pm PT.
Stephany @StephanyFolsom grew up at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
Raised in a family of educators and artists, Stephany always wanted to
be a writer. At the age of 17, she packed up an old Chevy Corsica with
her worldly belongings and left home to attend film school in Los
Angeles. While still in school, Stephany learned the realities of movie
making by assisting director Tony Scott on set.
From there she worked at a major studio and production company, where
she took up the mantle of TV and film development, learning the ins and
outs of her craft. After her stint in development, Stephany finely
tuned her storytelling skills traveling the world. She produced a series
of short-form documentaries on the worldwide AIDS crisis, human
trafficking and the drug trade. After spending some time in war zones
and Third World countries, Stephany decided to return to a calmer life
in Los Angeles and focus on her writing. These days, Stephany keeps all
the high-stakes drama on the page, and she highly recommends that no
matter where you go – always bring extra toilet paper.
Stephany’s first script 1969: A SPACE ODYSSEY made the coveted Black List and Hit List. She is currently adapting Harlan Coben’s MISSING YOU for Brett Ratner’s RatPac and Warner Bros.
