Jim Ellis and Eli Acosta welcome industry professionals to Industry Insights to share their knowledge with the next generation of filmmakers.
Today, they have a special guest, Omar Spahi, known for his work on Netflix’s Code 8 and other television series such as Ben 10 and Sonic Prime.
Inspired by movies like Children of Men that show how children bring hope into the world, Omar has been motivated to create better stories for future generations through storytelling.
He started writing comic books at Image Comics, where he learned about creating characters owned by creators rather than companies like DC or Marvel comics that do not own all their characters’ IPs.
He also wrote episodes for Sonic Prime under guidance from Steve Siegel since there are rules in place when writing an episode within an established intellectual property (IP).
Omar Spahi is the co-founder of CreationStation.tv and is currently heading up an NFT project involving comics. Listen to the full episode to hear his full story!
