I’m delighted that the British Film Institute (BFI) in partnership with Bloomsbury will be publishing my first book – ‘We Have Some Notes…’ In which award-winning writers & directors discuss how to make notes, script editing & development a successful creative process. Sharing behind the scenes stories & advice on what is, and what isn’t, useful. Together with a selection of ‘top-tips’ from some note-givers – producers, development executives and script editors – their advice for enabling a constructive and succesful process.
Featuring interviews with writers and directors from film and television, including: multi BAFTA winning Russell T Davies (Doctor Who, It’s a Sin, Queer As Folk); Oscar winning Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire, The Full Monty); multi BAFTA winning Sally Wainwright (Gentleman Jack, Last Tango In Halifax, Happy Valley); Oscar nominated, BAFTA winning Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917, Last Night In Soho); BAFTA winning Amma Asante (Belle, A United Kingdom, Mrs America); triple Oscar nominated Tomm Moore (Wolfwalkers, The Song Of The Sea); BAFTA winning Michael Pearce (Beast, Encounter); BAFTA nominated Lone Scherfig (An Education, Their Finest, Italian For Beginners); multi award-winning Ben Wheatley (Free Fire, Kill List, A Field In England); multi award-winning Corin Hardy (The Nun, The Hallow, Gangs Of London); British Independent Film Award winning Alice Lowe (Sightseers, Prevenge) and more!
Hoping, when it comes out, people find it as enjoyable and interesting to read as I have to write, and that it helps contribute to more enriching and creative notes relationships.
