Film Talks: Matt Lohr 

.......In space, no one can hear you type.


Imagine a world where you learn from one of the greatest. Imagine a world where your teacher, your mentor was... Dan O’Bannon.

Meet writer Matt Lohr. That was his world.

THE Dan O'Bannon, highly acclaimed science fiction/horror screenwriter, best known for writing films such as: ALIEN, THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, TOTAL RECALL, INVADERS FROM MARS (1986), and SCREAMERS. 

Before O’Bannon passed away in 2009, he was writing a book on screenwriting that was later published by one of his students, Matt Lohr. Lohr will be joining Other Worlds Austin Film Festival in partnership with the Austin School of Film for a free, open to the public morning breakfast talk & share as part of our ongoing series Film Talks. Lohr will be joined by the late O’Bannon’s wife, Diane.

A must for writers in our community to have a chance to share and learn how a great screenwriter works, Lohr will lead a discussion on O'Bannon’s screenwriting ‘system,’ and break down his most monumental work, ALIEN.
