Screenwriter Neil Landau talks about his bestselling *101 Things I Learned in Film School* with the creator of the *101 Things I Learned* series, Matthew Frederick. The evening includes a trivia contest on Boston film and television as well as a discussion of the how-to's and why-to's of filmmaking, screenwriting, book-to-film, and more. How does one effectively set a scene? What is the best camera angle for a particular mood? How does new technology interact with scenes? And how does one even get the financing to make a movie? These basic questions and much more are covered in this book on the film industry and making movies as a profession. With insights for someone who wants to make movies as a full-time career, or just someone who is interested in film, *101 Things I Learned in Film School* offers an inside view of the art and craft of filmmaking.
