On January 25th roughly 320 guests joined us downtown for the live recording of the SCRIPTNOTES podcast. The night was packed with screenwriting tips, tricks, and some hilarious inside stories from successful Hollywood screenwriters.
SCRIPTNOTES is a podcast where seasoned pros John August (Frankenweenie, Corpse Bride) and Craig Mazin (Identity Thief, Hangover II & III) discuss screenwriting and related topics in the film and television industry ranging from getting stuff written to the vagaries of copyright and work-for-hire law. And they blew it out of the park on the 25th!
John and Craig were joined by special guests Jason Bateman (actor Arrested Development, Identity Thief) and David Benioff and Dan Weiss (co-creators of Game of Thrones) who had wonderful (and funny!) insights into the world of screenwriting. If you weren’t able to join us, the podcast will be available on the SCRIPTNOTES website johnaugust.com/scriptnotes.
The ticket proceeds will benefit our year-round programs. SCRIPTNOTES is the first of three “Industry Insider” events scheduled this year to raise money for Hollywood HEART’s arts programs.
