Episode 1: Michael Arndt, "Endings"

For the first episode of OnWriting, we spoke with Academy Award-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt about his video lecture, ENDINGS: THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE INSANELY GREAT.

Michael’s first feature-length screenplay – LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE – earned him the Oscar and the Writers Guild Award for Best Original Screenplay. His other credits include TOY STORY 3, THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE, and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

His video lecture, ENDINGS, explores how great film endings work through a close analysis of the climaxes of STAR WARS, THE GRADUATE, and LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE.
