    Looking forward to seeing you there! And keep an eye out for another SELAH event coming on Wednesday, February 26th when Harvardwood hosts a dinner for the community!

    Harvardwood Heads To... Can I Say That? A Screenplay Workshop

    Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 07:00 PM · $20.00 USD
    SPARC in Venice, CA

    Writing a screenplay inspired by a true story? Penning the next fantasy epic? Inventing alternative histories? This C.L.A. (California Lawyers for the Arts) workshop covers potential sticky situations that may arise when adapting real events or commercial titles for the big screen. Attorneys from CBS and Showtime will lend their expertise regarding defamation, clearances, and trade infringement.

    Whether it's a biopic or science fiction, a screenplay needs to be combed over for potential legal conflicts. Did a President really pass that controversial law? Is the story perhaps a little too inspired by Game of Thrones? Depicting real people and events, adapting a book, or writing stories closely related to popular titles needs to be handled with finesse and care.

    About the Speakers:
    Bios forthcoming

    These workshops are made possible, in part, from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; The City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; and the California Community Foundation.  Additional support provided by the California Arts Council.
