My name is Austin Muratori and I am 23 years old. I am a writer, photographer and filmmaker from a small town in Michigan. I graduated with honors from Full Sail University where I received a Bachelors Degree in Film in 2015. I am a very down to earth guy. I love movies, reading, traveling and spending time with my friends, family and girlfriend. My love for writing and filmmaking began at a very young age. It began when I was ten years old after being diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer. The pain from the treatments was pretty intense, so to escape all that pain and negativity I got a notebook and pen and began to write.
It started with basic journaling, I would describe my day including my treatments and what was going on then it grew to making up little stories in order to create my own world. In that world I was no longer sick and in pain and really that is what helped to pull me through. After the cancer went into remission I continued to write every chance I got. I always competed in my schools Young Authors Program and had a decent amount of success. I also really loved and still do love movies and I dreamed of being able to make them. I would hang out with friends on the weekends and I would write a film and we would all make it. Once in high school I continued on my filmmaking and writing journey by enrolling in every writing and film class that I could find. One of my favorite classes was Creative Writing. That was when I truly explored all the different styles of writing. I learned actual structure and was amazed at what I could do. I also learned how to write screenplays properly and took off with it. I really enjoy writing short stories, poems, songs, novels, and screenplays. I basically love every style and am always taking on the challenge of different formats. I have been competing in the yearly novel writing event every November called Nanowrimo. This November will be my fourth year and I am proud to say that I have reached my goal of 50,000 words each time.
Currently I am working on a compilation book of short stories that I hope to release later this year. I am also working on a novel and feature screenplay. My writing schedule consists of writing each and every day for a few hours so I am constantly working on a project. As far as film goes I have worked on quite a few things the most recent being a film titled “The End of the Tour” starring Jessie Eisenberg and Jason Segel and is due to be released in 2015. I also had the chance to work on a feature horror film titled “Moorland” which premiered on October 20th 2014 with great success. It will be released on DVD and digital download soon!
