About Me

Hey, I’m Antareep Boraz,

About a decade ago, I was an aimless schoolboy who came across a concept called Suspension of Disbelief. It means that an audience believes in fictional characters and events playing out in a book or a movie. We experience fiction like we experience reality. We buy into any story if it’s told well enough. Isn’t it a powerful concept? I certainly thought so and thus began my journey to understand it better.
 
Today, I am a certified screenwriter who cooks up stories for a living. Through my journey, I have learned a thing or two about why we are bound to be suspended in disbelief every time we come across a great story. Through Filmy Stories, I share my understanding and opinions about how great stories are told and how great storytelling impacts our daily lives
