So, What's Your Story?

Screenwriter, author and story analyst in Toronto, Canada

About Randall

A student of irrational thought and unfettered speech, Randall C Willis was perfectly suited to co-write the award-winning sketch comedy special SomeTV!

He has also received many accolades for his screen- and teleplay writing, with awards such as Best Animated Feature at the 2014 Nashville Film Festival, Thriller Finalist at the 2017 Nashville Film Festival, and Semifinalist at the 2015 American Zoetrope competition.

More recently, Randall has taken his passion for story in two directions. He started a story analysis & coaching business called So, What's Your Story? And he also teaches screenwriting at Raindance Canada and George Brown College, both in Toronto.

Randall has been a first- and second-round reader for the Austin Film Festival, and most recently served as Reader Director for Raindance Canada's inaugural Live Option! Screenplay Competition.

And just to be on the masochistic side, Randall is writing the historical fiction novel Thera & co-wrote a semi-biographical novel called Rock'n'Roll Refugee.

If Shakespeare had lived a little longer, he probably would have stolen from Randall.
