Watch This Session

Get unparalleled insight into the writing of the classic / notorious / infamous Hollywood thriller ‘Basic Instinct’, with screenwriter Joe Eszterhas.

Joe is sending us his personal shooting script which we will scan and send to all our delegates. You can then read the shooting script, watch the film on DVD beforehand, then attend the session at the festival.

During the session, we will work through the script, scene by scene, comparing to the final movie and discussing why certain creative choices were made.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to get inside the head of one of the most successful screenwriters in Hollywood, getting insight into how he thinks, how he writes, and why LaLa Land was prepared to pay him $millions for his work.
