From Scene To Screen

Posted October 29, 2009 B By John Saccenti

Get insight from movie directors, authors and screen writers about their big screen works
Series Begins Sunday, November 15th from 2 to 4:30 p.m.

If you enjoy movies, then you are going to love the East Brunswick Public Library’s new series “From Scene to Screen.” Join professional directors, authors and screen writers during November and December as they introduce their works and give attendees an inside look at the creative process behind them.

On Sunday, Nov. 15, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. documentarian Aaron Woolf will present a talk about his award-winning feature, “King Corn,” the story of two friends, one acre of corn and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. On Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. David Saperstein, award-winning author  and filmmaker of “Cocoon,” stops by to talk about his career and how it has changed from wanting to write the Great American Novel to wanting to write the Great American Movie. On Sunday, Dec. 6, from 2 to 4 p.m., award winning-experimental media artist Albert G. Nigrin will talk about how a story is conceived and the filming and editing process. Mr. Nigrin’s works are meant to be poetic, using metaphor and “dreamscapes,” where ordinary places and objects are transformed into dream-like environments. These events are sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the Arts Commission, the Division of Recreation and the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission.
