Script to Screen Series
The Script to Screen series examines the translation of the script to the screen from the perspective of the writers, directors, producers and actors. Through a lively, moderated discussion, the script will take center stage. The intimate, state of the art, 296 seat Pollock Theater is the perfect place to connect artists with our patron audience consisting of aspiring production students, Guild and Academy members and the general Santa Barbara community. Past honored guests have included Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley for 12 Years a Slave, Oscar-nominated screenwriter Bob Nelson for Nebraska, Oscar-winning screenwriter Tom Schulman for Dead Poets Society, and actor Malcolm McDowell for A Clockwork Orange.
After a screening of the artists' work, the theater transforms into a TV studio where our Q&A’s become a hi-definition, multi-camera show produced and directed by the Pollock Theater Interns. These shows are live-streamed for Academy members and film lovers, they air on the UCTV cable channel, and can be obtained on iTunes, which just last month had 350,000 downloads.
Script to Screen is sponsored by the department of Film and Media Studies and the Carsey-Wolf Center. It is hosted and produced by the Pollock Theater Director, Matt Ryan, and co-produced by Joe Palladino.
Script to Screen has now expanded to Script to Screen: On Location, where we interview screenwriters, actors and directors on the sets of their current films, productions offices or on the red carpet. We have interviewed Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck, David O. Russell and many more.
