Stage 32 & Michael Wiese Productions Present: The Future of Story - LA

Exclusive – One Night Only!

On Thursday, August 3rd, Stage 32 and Michael Wiese Productions are thrilled to bring you an intimate and educational evening with some of the industry's top writers, coaches and teachers working today.

Join Jen Grisanti, Steve Kaplan, Christopher Vogler, Alvaro Rodriguez and Richard Botto for a timely panel on the craft and business of screenwriting in 2017 . Our esteemed panelists will be covering a wide range of topics including the current state of the industry, what’s hot in television and features, where most writers struggle with their craft and much more. We’ll also be taking questions from the audience and may even critique a pitch or two!

But we did say this would be an intimate evening as well. So, after the panel, join us for an extended cocktail hour and networking event sponsored by Tito's Handmade Vodka, the official vodka of Stage 32. Meet your fellow scribes and get up and close with not only the panelists, over two dozen additional Michael Wiese authors!

About The Evening

Panel Discussion: Screenwriting & the Marketplace: 2017

7:00pm - 8:30pm

Our esteemed group of panelists will be discussing the state of the screenwriting industry today, writing trends they are seeing and offer tips & advice for screenwriters to navigate the business. We will be discussing the craft, including trends we are seeing in film and TV scripts right now including successful case studies. We will also be discussing the barriers of entry for both first time screenwriters as well as those established writers trying to navigate today’s ever shifting landscape. We’ll discuss the bending and meshing of genre and how Netflix and Amazon have not only influenced the marketplace, but the craft as well. You will receive tips on how to navigate the new paradigm of studio, cable and streaming and what that means for your career. Best of all, you’ll be able to ask questions during our extended Q&A session. 

This is sure to be the most informative panel you’ll attend this year. Please remember to book early!
