'On Golden Pond' screenwriter offers master class

Ernest Thompson, the Academy Award winner for his best adapted screenplay "On Golden Pond," is slotted to teach a screenwriting master class on Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the InterContinental Hotel, 510 Atlantic Ave. in Boston.

An experienced writer, actor and director, Thompson will analyze scenes submitted for discussion and performance. Hosted by Boston Casting, the class will also allow actors to hash out scenes during the seminar and will help advanced screenwriters to fine-tune their work.

Armed with over 40 years in the business, Thompson has written more than 25 screenplays and has directed a slew of actors including Shirley MacClaine, Julie Andrews and Robert Downey Jr.

Thompson, who currently lives in Kittery, Maine, is currently in the pre-production process of his latest film, "Elysian Farm," which will be shot in New England later this year.

The class costs $150. Click here for the lowdown.
