FanExpo Podcast Now Available

Members of the Writers Guild of Canada returned to FanExpo Canada on August 23 to talk all things horror.

The entertaining and insightful panel "Tales from the Script-Keepers: The craft of creating hair-raising horror," included screenwriters Aaron Martin (creator, Slasher), Jackie May (writer/EP, Van Helsing), JP Larocque (Slasher, Another Life) and moderator James Hurst. They delved into what goes into making a spine-chilling horror series that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, the ins and outs of crafting compelling horror — including where their ideas come from, what tropes to avoid (or even embrace) — the challenges of scripting horror for serialized formats, and why the genre is more popular now than ever.

If you were unable to make the panel or would like to listen again, it's available as a podcast right here.
