Austin Film Festival says
Join Austin Film Festival and writer/director Craig Brewer for an in-depth exploration of bringing Hustle & Flow to the big screen.

Before Luscious and Cookie Lyon, Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson first tested their musical chops in this Oscar nominated film following a Memphis pimp attempting to become a successful hip-hop artist. And though Craig Brewer did in fact direct an episode of Empire, for this panel, he will focus on his 2005 Sundance film. Brewer will reference specific scenes as examples – with clips projected on the screen– to highlight the process of directing his own script, what worked from the original screenplay, what needed to change for production, and why.

A great case study for those interested in learning more about infusing originality, heart and soul into their work, the pros and cons of directing your own script, and what to expect in between the first draft and final shot.
