Script-to-Screen: Dead Poets Society

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Tom Schulman, Academy Award®-winning writer of Dead Poets Society, will walk us through the process of bringing his first screenplay to the big screen, how he referenced his own life as inspiration, and the writer/director relationship with Peter Weir. With script in hand and scenes projected during the panel for reference, Schulman will discuss what from the original screenplay worked, what didn’t, what needed to be changed for production, and why.

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.
