September 29th Event - Mega Producer Clark Peterson
A personal message from Mark Sevi, president of OC Screenwriters:
Hi, all. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
I've been a professional screenwriter for 20 years. Had 19+ movies produced, more to come.
Clark Peterson (IMDB page), my friend, has been responsible for three of them and I hope at some point ten or twelve more.
Clark ("Monster" "Dear Mr. Gacy" "Dim Sum Funeral" "Rampart") is a remarkable producer/writer/exec. He's smart, in touch with today's markets, and a hard-working, no-excuses dude. The movies on which we've worked were fantastic and that continues with everything that Clark does.
His recent film, "Devil's Knot" (original script by me) stars Academy Award-winning actors Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. It's one of the most compelling films in recent memory and based in horrifying true events.
A few years back, Clark fell in love with his soul mate, a talented (and gorgeous) writer/producer/show runner named Stacy Rukeyser ("The Lying Game" "One Tree Hill" "Greek" "Crash") This not only made his heart happy but the two of them then became one of the more formidable Hollywood producing teams out there.
Clark and Stacy are both in direct touch with today's markets in features and television. Because they're also both writers, they know 1st hand what it takes to be creative in a business that both rewards and ignores creativity.
FINDING A BALANCE between those two is essential - they can tell you how. Clark and Stacy know this business from all angles, intimately, and they will inform and inspire you and your work...
- SERIOUSLY, DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT -
There are no more informed and industry-aware guests in this business. If you really care about carving out a career in film, come listen to and ask questions of two of the most dynamic (and nicest) film/television producers (and people) that I have had the pleasure to meet in over 20 years of my professional life.
Come, learn, listen and network. See you there! Details after the jump.
