Interview with Film director and writer Bo Starks

My mom would read bed stories to me as kid and I would imagine me changing the story to make it perfect. As I grew up I just fell in love with words and the art of story telling.

Tell us about yourself and what you do
I am Bo Starks and I am an Film director and writer. I create, write, and develop television shows and reality series. I have a new reality series “City Dreams: LA” thats coming to tv this fall. Its about 6 women who move to Hollywood to pursue careers in the entertainment industry and all of the drama that ensues.

Who has inspired you in your life and why?
My mom would read bed stories to me as kid and I would imagine me changing the story to make it perfect. As I grew up I just fell in love with words and the art of story telling but when I worked for MTV in New York thats when I knew I was good at it. When I was there they loved all my ideas so I moved back to Philly and immediately received my own tv show.

bostarksWhat is your greatest achievement so far?
It may sound like it was all easy but it wasn’t at all. Having talent may make others notice your potential then that creates the pressure of having to live up to some one else’s dreams for you thus losing your self but as for what I achieved for my dreams that I’m most proud of it is definitely directing my first feature “Love Or Laughs.” Even my momma told me not to make the film but when she saw it she loved it.

Do you have any tips for our readers that are trying to break in the industry?
Patience, planning, and passion. Get active and enjoy the experience.
