Sunday Afternoons for Kids: Script Surgery

Sunday Aug 9, 2009 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 8–13

When the script for a Hollywood blockbuster is hanging on for dear life, the EPs call in a script doctor to make everything better. Screenwriters Lindsey Robinson (who has worked at MTV and Lionsgate) and Jon Zack (whose credits include Shrek the Third and the upcoming Puss in Boots) will take things further, teaching students script surgery: how to write entirely new characters, settings, and plot elements for well-loved recent movies.
