COLLIER LANDRY is a multifaceted artist known for his work as a cinematographer, podcast host, and award-winning documentary filmmaker. He gained widespread recognition as the creator and subject of A Murder in Mansfield, a film directed by two-time Oscar winner Barbara Kopple.
Collier's passion for storytelling was sparked by his own traumatic childhood experience: the pre-meditated murder of his mother by his psychopath father. He uses film and podcasting to creatively express and deal with this trauma and as a platform to give a voice to others who have faced similar circumstances.
Collier hosts the award-winning Moving Past Murder podcast, which offers his unique perspective on surviving true crime and overcoming adversity. He interviews guests who have experienced or overcome tremendous life challenges and hopes the show serves as a form of therapy and reconciliation for himself and his listeners.
Collier's message of human resilience and hope has inspired audiences worldwide, his work has amassed over 1.5 billion views on YouTube alone. He has been featured in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Newsweek, VICE, Esquire, and The Independent, and has appeared as a TEDx, keynote speaker, and a guest on the Dr. Phil show.
2023 projects include the award-winning documentary 1946: The Mistranslation that shifted a culture, and the upcoming podcast The Survivor Squad, which he co-hosts with fellow survivor and true-crime advocate Terra Newell (Wondery's Dirty John). He is writing a memoir and developing a one-man show based on his inspiring story. Both are slated for release in early 2024.
