Q&A: Marc Pye, "Act Of Grace" Movie

Regular readers of this blog will no doubt recognise the name Marc Pye from this, this and this post. As he’s a prolific Bang2writer, I’ve read lots of Marc’s work now and as a veteran of UK TV drama, Marc has written on numerous shows like River City, The Street, Holby Blue and Echo Beach. In fact, he’s so busy all the time (damn him), it’s wonder Marc has time for anything but writing TV… But he manages it somehow and I’m pleased to announce that Marc, along with co-writers Max Kinnings and Alan Field, have managed to get their… Read More »Q&A: Marc Pye, "Act Of Grace" Movie

Q&A: Adrian Mead on directing

Some thoughts on directing, funding and dogs rolling in their own pee from Scribosphere Big Daddy Adrian Mead… Enjoy!—————————————————————————— The tagline for Night People is “A cold October night. Five stories, one city.” What was the inspiration behind the film? Multi character stories have always appealed to me and I know lots of people really enjoy them. Night People is set in Edinburgh and follows five stories told over one night. Each of the characters is faced with making a major decision, ranging from the heartbreaking to the hilarious. By the time morning comes their lives will have changed forever.… Read More »Q&A: Adrian Mead on directing

Raindance Film Screening: MAN WHO WOULD BE QUEEN

Busy, busy, busy yesterday! Spent the day in Londonium for a meeting, though I managed to squeeze in the marvellous Elinor for lunch dar-link and James Moran for afternoon drinkies. I’d not met James before in “real” life and it was quite a revelation my friends: it’s quite sad really, he obviously misses his straight jacket from his years of incarceration; he keeps hugging himself in this sweet, yet ultimately futile manner. Curse Care In The Community. I also got to see JK Amalou (did I mention I was busy?) whilst I was in The Capital and he tells me… Read More »Raindance Film Screening: MAN WHO WOULD BE QUEEN

Digital Shorts: Q&A

Judging by the amount of emails I’ve received regarding this scheme, many blog readers are going for this so here’s a few quick questions I fired at scheme director Sarah-Jane Meredith at the beginning of this week:——————————————————————————-What’s the mission statement of Digital Shorts?To support short innovative ideas which present new ways of telling stories. How did you get such great companies like Aardman, PVA, The Engine Room etc involved in Digital Shorts?Because it presents a good opportunity for them to work with both the RSA and the UKFC on a nationally recognized initiative; because there is money on the table;… Read More »Digital Shorts: Q&A

Q+A: Marc Pye, TV Writer

Regular Readers of the blog in its previous AOL incarnation should remember this post about Marc just before his episode of Jimmy McGovern’s The Street was broadcast last year. If you’ve never heard of him however, Marc is a veteran writer for UK TV drama and all-round top bloke. We met in reality for the first time this year at Adrian Mead’s Long Distance Screenwriter course in Edinburgh, but I first heard from Marc himself when I read his feature screenplay The Mole for him way back in 2005, though I had actually read his stuff before in 2002 through… Read More »Q+A: Marc Pye, TV Writer

Q & A: The Accidental Script Reader

If you’re wondering what I’m up to and I’m sure you are judging by the amount of emails I’ve had in the last week asking if I’m “still here” since I’ve “hardly written anything”, then I can assure you, my lovely bloggers that indeed I am. Just stressed. And ill, thanks to James Moran. No, we’re not having an affair, it’s his blasted Space Virus. Somehow he’s managed to transmit it over the radiowaves (or whatever the internet works on) and on to me. Cheers. Mate. The lovely Anya, whom I read for recently, emailed with a few questions about… Read More »Q & A: The Accidental Script Reader
