Orion, Dean

Dean Orion began his career as a professional writer by crafting copy for a local Long Island ad agency by day and hopping trains to The Lee Strasberg Creative Center in New York City, where his first play, Weekend In My Mind, was produced by night. Dean Orion, draws on his more than 20 years as a “writer in the trenches” of the entertainment industry to explain how he has created original stories for theater, television, videogames and theme park experiences. The book features a step-by-step walk thru of the process of creating original stories, both “on spec” and “for hire,” as well as helpful hands-on checklists at the end of each chapter, and an intriguing afterword about the future of storytelling.
