Craig Mazin and John August

You listen to them while driving, running, and folding laundry — Now’s your chance to see Scriptnotes LIVE!

THIS JUST IN! John will be selling his brand new book Arlo Finch in the Lake of the Moon and signing after the show!

Join the Northwest Screenwriters Guild and TheFilmSchool as we welcome two of the most well-known writers in Hollywood–John August and Craig Mazin–to the Pacific Northwest. The co-hosts will record their popular podcast, Scriptnotes, in front of a live audience of writers, filmmakers, and movie lovers from Vancouver to Portland and all parts in between.

Cheer them on. Meet and network with other film buffs. And show Craig Mazin that Seattle can fill a room with “Sexy Craig” fanatics–as dangerous as that sounds.

  • Doors open: 6:30pm (come hang out and meet other filmmakers!)
  • Show starts: 7pm

All proceeds will go toward creating sustainable pathways for Northwest writers to find viable careers in screenwriting and film.

Emily is the Fiction Lead for ProbablyMonsters, a new gaming/entertainment studio. She oversees development of the story, characters, and cinematics. Prior to her foray into gaming, Emily was the Creative Development Associate at Pixar Animation Studios and the Script Supervisor on INSIDE OUT. She taught script development at the Northwest Film Forum and the Tom Skerritt-founded Film School, and she sits on the board of the Seattle Clemency Project. She’s also done “script consulting” on occasion, so Craig thinks of her as a used car dealer.
