Easter - Script to screen potluck

Hey Everyone,  

It's time for another script to screen potluck event! :-) 

As easter is just around the corner I thought we have an easter themed event and read/watch Aliens (as it has eggs in it :-). 

I've never seen Aliens on the big screen and maybe some of you haven't either. So this is going to be so much fun.

1) As always everyone will first read the movie script upfront. Here is the link:

http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Aliens.html

2) Then we will watch the movie on the 26th of April and discuss:

- script parts which were cut out of or rewritten for the film, so that the film works better than the script or the other way round

- how the style of the script was transferred to the big screen, showing the impact writing can have on a film

- script to screen elements such as character descriptions, first character introductions, script/film style, turning points, etc.

The event will take place in a little theatre (see picture beneath). To make this a fun movie experience it would be great if everyone could bring some snacks or drinks. We will have breaks to mingle, eat/drink and discuss.

    Great event. Really enjoyed the time spent with the Aliens.
    A special shout-out to all the effort that Jennifer put into making it all happen. Made the evening even better having so much prep shared with all of us.

    Yeah I'm exhausted. I'm working and didn't sleep a wink last night and I gotta be up early to work tomorrow. I was really looking forward to this one as I love Aliens. But I love sleep and sanity more :P See you at the next one.

    Hi. In a workshop today and may be delayed. Also still jet lagged from flying from JFK yesterday, so will have to cancel. Have fun.

    Anyone in the Burnaby area that can offer a ride? Or meet somewhere to get picked up?

    I am sorry for the short notice but I am still dealing with this flu bug. Thought I would be good to go this morning but nope. Hope someone can take my spot still and see you all next time.

      Awww. That is a shame. Hopefully next time. We will miss you Darren. :-)

    Sounds like it could be fun as well as enlightening. Is there a charge?

    April 9, 2014

    • Jennifer S.

      Hey Chris, there is no charge. :-)

    Theatrical cut or director's cut?

    April 8, 2014

    • Jennifer S.

      Not sure yet. I think the director's cut is the one which is longer right? I'm thinking of the director's cut as it has some neat scenes in there which are important for the plot and story. :-)
