Innovations in digital technology continue to revolutionize every aspect of moviemaking. “Turning the Page” explored how emerging technologies can shape narrative capabilities and influence the crafts of screenwriting, cinematography and editing.
The panel of noted filmmakers, led by writer John August, focused on movies that feature very different genres, settings and time periods, including “Argo,” “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Star Trek Into Darkness.” Using examples from the films they’ve worked on, the group discussed how advances in technology and refinements in production methods have a powerful impact on the entire process of storytelling, from the development of a script through the finishing touches of post-production.
Host John August writes a popular screenwriting blog and discusses writing on the podcast site Scriptnotes. His screenwriting credits include “Go,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Big Fish,” “Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “The Nines” and “Frankenweenie.” Read more about the event here.
