Script-to-Screen: The Fugitive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us as Jeb Stuart dissects the screenplay for his classic thriller The Fugitive, and fills us in on the story's journey from script to screen. During this talk, Stuart will reference specific scenes from the film—with clips projected during the panel—and discuss the writer/director relationship: 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 creating strong protagonists and powerful setups and payoffs, as well as how to keep an audience on the edge of their seat.

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.
