Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to feature on Season 10 of On Story

It’s important to honor hard work and talent in every field. When we validate someone’s good work, it prompts them to hustle even better. For an artist, this need grows many-fold. Game of Thrones’ success all over the globe has brought it many such accolades. Another feather in the cap came last year when the creators, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss got the Outstanding Television Writer Award at the 26th Annual Austin Film Festival and Conference. To mark this special moment, they will be up, discussing the hit series, on an episode from season 10 of Austin Film Festival’s On Story; a TV program that features conversations between writers, creators, and filmmakers to provide an inside look into the creative process of films and TV series.

Austin 360 reported that On Story’s tenth season will have 17 episodes featuring recorded conversations from the 26th Annual Austin Film Festival and Conference. It will include filmmakers, TV and feature writers namely, Lulu Wang (The Farewell), Craig Mazin (Chernobyl), David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (Game of Thrones), David Mandel (Veep), and many more.

“‘On Story’ gives viewers a free front-row seat to hundreds of filmmakers sharing their fascinating behind-the-scenes stories at Austin Film Festival. These conversations often send audiences back for repeat viewings of their favorite shows, or introduce them to movies they missed the first time around and always with a greater appreciation; now knowing the creative decisions that went into making them,” said Maya Perwez, On Story executive producer, in a statement.

Although a show like Game of Thrones is not short on popularity, every year, there is a ton of amazing content that does not catch anyone’s attention. However, there are places like the Austin Film Festival that aim to highlight such projects. Its annual festival features screenings and premieres for films, primarily focusing on the craft of screenwriting and direction. It has also included awards for producers and actors lately.

Season 10 of On Story premieres in April 2020 across the United States. Apart from the weekly TV program, the content will also be available through other outlets; a one-hour weekly radio program in collab with Public Radio Exchange (PRX); three ‘On Story’ books by the University of Texas Press; a free podcast series on iTunes, Spotify, and Stitcher.

Moreover, such interviews are always great for viewers. It allows them to engage with the story more deeply while taking a backseat, away from their prima-facie opinion. We feel GoT’s season 8 could benefit from that. Thus, we look forward to hearing the Game of Thrones creators talk about the show’s inside process. What about you? Which episodes interest you?

The fiercest warriors leave a lasting presence to those who have witnessed them in a fight. Lots of fans look up to them as their idol, waiting for a chance to see them again.

Movies and shows are not just a form of entertainment. They are a powerful method of describing real-life situations. The Long Night 2020 left a vast number of families devastated. With fewer job opportunities and rising prices, many of them had to flee to survive. Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will be telling one such scintillating story in the documentary film Flee, directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen.

Flee tells the story of Amin Nawabi (a pseudonym), a child refugee fleeing his home in Afghanistan to safety in Denmark. Recounted mostly through animation to Rasmussen, his close friend and high-school classmate. Amin tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey. Riz Ahmed will take on the role of Amin, while Coster-Waldau voices Rasmussen in the documentary.

“I was floored by the emotional impact of Flee.’ This is a unique project that pushes forward our ideas of what documentary, animation, and refugee-centred narratives can be. I’m proud to help bring this project to life for English-speaking audiences,” said Ahmed.

Coster-Waldau said, “When I watched ‘Flee’ I was blown away. The power of a story told in a simple way. ‘Flee’ is a story of extreme perseverance and hope where all hope seems lost. Director Rasmussen captures the intensity of one refugee’s unbelievable journey from the streets of Kabul to the Danish suburbia. Amin is able to tell his story hidden behind his animated avatar. It feels so much more revealing and honest than had it been a standard filmed interview.”

Another Game of Thrones alum Peter Dinklage is also going to lend his voice to an animated movie Hitpig. How do you feel about the movie’s plot? Tell us in the comments below!
