Scott Z. Burns, writer of Side Effects, The Informant!, and co-writer of The Bourne Ultimatum, will dissect his high-stakes screenplay, Contagion, and the story’s journey from script to screen. Burns will reference specific scenes from the film—with clips projected during the panel—and discuss the writer/director relationship with Steven Soderbergh: what from the original screenplay worked, what didn’t, what needed to be changed for production, and why. A great case-study for writers interested in learning more about folding tension into their work, as well as how to successfully weave together intersecting storylines.

Those who enrolled in the advance-sign up for this session are required to show up 15 minutes early and will be admitted first. The panel will then open to remaining Badge holders.
