Thompson on Hollywood

Heading toward Halloween, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the evolution of creature technology on October 21 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. "Monsters in the Movies" will include an on-stage discussion with industry technical experts plus film clips tracing technological progress from 1933's King Kong to 1993's Jurassic Park and beyond. A display of monster movie artifacts will welcome guests in the lobby. Click here for tickets and info.

Post-Halloween, also at the Goldwyn, AMPAS will present the roundtable discussion, "Perspectives on Screenwriting," on November 2.

The participants include Oscar nominees Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich), Ehren Kruger (The Ring), and Andrew Marlowe (Air Force One). Grant will address translating biography onto film, Kruger will discuss writing for films that lean on visual effects, and Marlowe will focus on writing for action films. The discussion celebrates the 25 year anniversary of the Academy's Nicholl Fellowships (all three screenwriters are past recipients). This year's recipients, to be announced later this month, will be selected from the 6,304 submitted scripts, hailing from 50 states and 60 countries.
