Though short-lived film revolutions have rejected the screenplay as blueprint for production, it remains as central as ever to the filmmaking process. Not only does it act as hub for the numerous practical systems of pre-production, production, and post, it contains subtleties essential to what each film is ultimately about. Writer and filmmaker Alan Arrivée discussed the screenplay from both a writer’s and filmmaker’s point of view, provide on-paper examples of his methods, and ask those attending to join in exercises to discover for themselves the potential of the script as source.

Alan Arrivée is a filmmaker, writer, and Assistant Professor of Cinema and Cinema Director at The University of Mississippi. His short film SILENT RADIO, which he both wrote and directed, was awarded Best Foreign Film and Best Cinematography at ÉCU in 2007. The film has been the Official Selection in over twenty international film festivals, including Staten Island and Breckenridge.
