  • Mark with ScarfMark W. Travis is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on the art and craft of film directing, writing and storytelling.  All of his techniques stem from his pursuit of organic and authentic performances that are deeply felt by audiences.  Mark is renowned for the Solo Shows he has developed and directed over the past 15 years, and has been credited in the L.A. Times with having created a ‘new theater genre.’

    Since 1992 Mark has been sharing his techniques on writing, acting and directing across the country and worldwide. His first book on film directing, The Director’s Journey, became an instant best-seller (L.A. Times) and was followed by Directing Feature Films which is currently required reading by hundreds of film schools worldwide. His latest book is the insightful, The Film Director’s Bag of Tricks. 

    ELSHA RED SMILEElsha Taya Bohnert is an award-winning artist and poet, and the author of Don’t Trip over the Garden Hose (Deuxmers, 2013).

    Elsha has been a longtime student of Mark Travis’ autobiographical storytelling workshops in Hawai`i and is the only person authorized by him to teach it. With her background in multicultural learning and narrative medicine, she helps students learn The Travis Technique through playful and provocative games. “You have to be like an ancient four-year-old,” she says, “clueless and wise about the enchanted worlds we come from and still carry around in our bodies.”
