This meetup is $10. We had written the price in the meetup description but we updated the info, and somehow the price got deleted. Sorry about that, but yes, I do need to charge for the lecture, as I have to compensate my speaker.
Mystery thrillers! Chris Nolan! Inception!
Did this movie thrill you? Frustrate you?
It made a ton of money by giving the mystery thriller audience the DRUGS that this genre promises to its addicts.
Hollywood story doctor, UCLA's Teacher of the Year in 2009, and HowMoviesWork's lead professor Peter Russell will be on hand to introduce this film, talk a little about how it works, and answer any questions you might have about this extraordinarily complex, exciting, baffling and gratifying movie.
Are you creating a mystery thriller? Or simply want to understand how you might do it someday?
Another reason to come.
Our workshop will last one hour, and then we'll go into the movie itself.
We will be showing the whole movie so that you can understand the lecture better. We do have a nice film projector a large screen available to show films.
