Stanton and Gaghan

If you missed the Sundance panel “The Power of Story: In the Beginning” – my conversation with four terrific screenwriters who also direct, produce and perform – you can watch the entire lively, witty discussion here.

The amazing lineup included Andrew Stanton, Stephen Gaghan (both in the photo above), Anna Deveare Smith and Terence Winter. They talked about the process of collaboration, about getting politically charged work to the public, and even about how they sometimes, luckily, look smarter than they thought they were.  They also showed and gave us the backstory on clips from some of their best work: Wall E, Syriana (did you know about the expensive falcon? or Gaghan’s last-minute decision to kill George Clooney’s character?), Let Me Down Easy and Boardwalk Empire.

I loved being part of this panel, and I think you’ll enjoy listening to these endlessly fascinating artists.
