On October 27th, the Pollock Theater launched the Script to Screen series with an advanced screening of Tower Heist. UCSB Alum and screenwriter, Jeff Nathanson, joined us for Q&A after the film to deconstruct the screenwriting process. He shared stories with the audience that ranged from working with Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller to the stylistic differences between the Directors Steven Spielberg and Bret Ratner.
The Pollock Theater welcomed Jeff Nathanson as our first Script to Screen guest.
The Script to Screen series examines screenwriting and how the screenplay is translated into film. In the series, guest writers reveal their creative storytelling process, actors discuss how they breathe life into the scripted characters, and directors explore the transformation of a script into a visual story for the screen.
We look forward to seeing you at future Script to Screen events.
Please enjoy the full Q&A video interview with Moderator-Matt Ryan and Screenwriter-Jeff Nathanson!
I thought Tower Heist was such a great movie – it was comedic, action-packed, and fully engaged my attention. I loved getting the chance to pre-screen the movie before it was released in theaters. The direct dialogue with the screenwriter gave me more insight into the creative process of screenwriting. Beatrice von Guggenberg
