Thompson on Hollywood

My favorite assignment every year is moderating the Santa Barbara Film Festival screenwriters panel It Starts With the Script. This year it featured (right to left in photo) Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), Scott Silver (The Fighter), David Seidler (The King's Speech), Charlie Mitchell (Get Low), Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right) and Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3). Check out the videos below.
