Brandon Easton is a super-accomplished creator. In addition to having made the must-see documentary Brave New Souls about African-American writers and artists in science fiction and fantasy novels, comics, and movies, he’s also a:

 

Easton has received the 2015 Disney-ABC Writing Program, a 2014 nomination for the Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Single Issue or One Shot, and four Glyph Awards. He was also a semi-finalist for the 2013 Hollywood Black Film Festival's Project Stargazer, which was a collaboration with NASA to find and develop science-fiction writers of color.

Easton spoke with me on June 27, 2016 by Skype, about:

  • How the Disney ABC Writing Programme works
  • Pro writing for the market with big money at stake
  • The pressure of writers rooms and how they made him smarter
  • How showrunners choose their writers
  • How to break an episode
  • The art and science of bottle shows
  • The penalties for going over budget

 

While I mention that we’ll be talking about writing for Marvel, that’ll be coming in a future episode of MF GALAXY, so keep subscribing.

Buy Brandon Easton’s Brave New Souls documentary on African-American science fiction and fantasy film makers, authors, and comic creators. It’s a great doc and it’s only 8 bucks.
