MICHAEL J. DOUGHERTY is an Irish kid from New York with spina bifida. A member of the WGA’s Writers with Disabilities Committee, he is also the writer/director of Look Around, a PSA produced by the WDC meant to encourage disability inclusion in media. He eats, drinks, breathes movies. None of what he creates is his parents’ fault.
Mike will talk about the need for diverse writers and writing diversity into your scripts.
He is currently based in Los Angeles and will be in Cape Town from the 17th of November to the 29th of November.
