Script to Screen Series
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. Through a lively, moderated discussion, the script will take center stage. On special occasions the actors will perform live scene readings.
The series is sponsored by the department of Film and Media Studies and the Carsey-Wolf Center, and hosted and produced by Matt Ryan. As part of the series, the Pollock Theater Interns receive first hand experience in event planning and event directing of our live multi-camera recordings of our Q&A's.
