On this special evening, Crowe, who also wrote and directed SAY ANYTHING…, SINGLES, VANILLA SKY, and the recent Showtime series ROADIES, gives us insight into his writing process, what inspired his most memorable scenes, and how he’s developed his unique voice.

TV Writers: The First Years of Your Career

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
WGF / WGA Headquarters – Del Reisman Multi-Purpose Room, Los Angeles

Every TV writer has his or her own story about how they broke into the industry and moved up the writers room ladder. On this special event, we’re partnering with the University of Chicago Arts Alumni Network to hear from writers about their first few years writing for television. They’ll share how they found representation and management, how they landed their first staff gig, and how they got that first script.

Bringing Words to Life: Writing for Performers

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
WGF / WGA Headquarters – Del Reisman Multi-Purpose Room, Los Angeles

As the entertainment industry rapidly evolves and becomes more accessible, creators have found themselves taking on multiple roles, from writing to acting to directing and everything in between.

On this special night, we team up with Cornell in Hollywood for a panel of five writers and actors (and Cornell alums) who will give their insight on how writing and acting intersect, how to honor a writer’s intention and still make a role entirely your own, and what it is like to take on both the jobs of writer and actor at once.

Tickets: $15.00 - $20.00
