Jeffrey Michael Bays is founder of the Borgus Network, a contributor to MovieMaker Magazine, No Film School, The Director's Chair, and author of Between the Scenes (the first ever book about scene transitions) available in book stores worldwide. He is director of the feature film Offing David but perhaps most widely known as a pioneer in audio recording, produced the first crowd-sourced radio play, Not From Space (2003), heard on XM Satellite Radio. This two-hour epic received the Mark Time Award, the Communicator Award of Excellence, and was recently listed by Time Out magazine as among the top five essential radio plays of all time.
Further inspiring other artists, he frequently holds workshops at the Palm Springs ShortFest, the Great American Pitchfest in Los Angeles, and the Moondance International Film Festival. For the last decade he has been a leading scholar on Alfred Hitchcock's suspense techniques. His documentary web series Hitch20 and eBook How to Turn Your Boring Movie into a Hitchcock Thriller are both widely popular in filmmaking circles. Jeffrey has a Masters in Cinema from La Trobe University, Australia, and a BA from Webster University, St. Louis.
