So apparently I am both an Oscar nominated director and Sir Michael Grade agrees with my views on the British Film Industry. All beamed out to millions of viewers this morning on Sky News. Very entertaining! I did the interview yesterday literally at a moments notice (to be clear, I was in fact Oscars shortlisted for Gone Fishing).
It was a reminder of just how fast broadcast TV turns around stories, and how much in need of stories they find themselves every single day. During the interview I pitched hard for story about the Guerilla Film maker books and the upcoming London Screenwriters Festival – and it looks like they liked the story too!
So, all fingers are crossed that in a month or so we will have a GREAT piece on Sky News. And if you missed it last year, here is a link to the Sky Movies Show about the Cheltenham Sceenwriters Festival where I was the opening keynote speaker.
Onwards and upwards!
