Final Draft Meetup & Q/A with Fight Club Screenwriter Jim Uhls

fight-club-soapHope some of you were able to make it to the June 9th meetup with screenwriter Scott Neustadter fresh off his film, The Fault In Our Stars, opening atop the box office.

Well, Final Draft is throwing out a bonus meetup.  This one’s in the valley next Thursday, June 19th.  And it’s with Jim Uhls who wrote one of the seminal films of the past 20 years, Fight Club.

Again, super envious of anyone who can and will attend.  This film’s dystopian statements about modern society have only become more and more prophetic.  When it came out, it was dismissed as anarchistic fantasy.  Yet when more deeply examined over time, it has become a harbinger of today.

Ok, I hear you.  Enough with the big words.  Gimme the deets.  Here they are:

Enjoy a drink and network with screenwriter Jim Uhls followed by a Q&A plus screening of his classic movie Fight Club in our first Valley Edition Meetup
