Christopher Borey teaches Introduction to Screenwriting and Introduction to Film and Television Directing at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.
He grew up primarily in the Midwest and did his undergraduate work in film theory at the University of Michigan. After graduating, he moved to Los Angeles to partner with his brother and begin working as a screenwriter. Their first script, Open Grave, made the Blacklist in 2006 and launched their careers. Although they began in horror, they quickly branched into other genres including action, science fiction and drama. Borey continued to work as a screenwriter while he pursued his M.F.A. in directing at UCLA TFT. While there, his short film At Falling Rock was a Directors Spotlight winner and also won the award for best screenplay.
Borey continues to work with his brother. They are currently working on multiple features on assignment, including an adaptation of a best-selling novel and a biopic.
