Los Angeles Film School Spotlights Oscar Nominated Scribes

 It was a film centric Monday for me, as I started the day co-hosting Behind The Lens with film critic/interviewer debbie lynn elias over at Adrenaline Radio, where we discussed the new documentaries Backstreet Boys: Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of and Energizing Our World (narrated by Edward James Olmos, whom we interviewed on the show).

But the day was far from over, as I trekked to Hollywood to catch an evening discussion with this year’s Oscar nominated screenwriters. The “Q&A With Jeff Goldsmith” event took place at The Los Angeles Film School, a venue which, along with being an educational institution, also offers up free screenings and discussions for the general public.

Although Foxcatcher scribe E. Max Frye humorously complained to Goldsmith that the group was much funnier during their Santa Barbara International Film Festival panel, Monday evening’s discussion was definitely informative. Each scribe reflected on the most challenging moments of their screenwriting careers and broke down the challenges of creating their respective narratives.

Along with Frye, the attendees included writers Damien Chazelle (“Whiplash”), Anthony McCarten (“The Theory of Everything”) Graham Moore (“The Imitation Game”), Alex Dinelaris Jr. (“Birdman”), Dan Gilroy (“Nightcrawler), and Jason Hall (“American Sniper”).
