The Silence

July 16, 2010

After a recommendation I caught episodes 1 & 2 of The Silence on BBC iPlayer. Interesting premise and really well done so far. Douglas Henshall, Gina McKee, Hugh Bonneville and Dervla Kirlan are all in the piece directed by Dearblha Walsh. Two episodes left to watch. Episode 1 is available until 22nd July with the others being available until shortly after that date. Catch it if you can, very strong screenplay by writer Fiona Seres.

carcass-script reader feedback

July 26, 2009

Just received my feedback from the Script Connection as part of my failed Film Council first feature film fund application (10.30 on a sunday night? Is the script connection one person working all day and night?).
Very detailed feedback that slowly dissected the script leaving it’s skin exposed on the examination table. An apt metaphor I feel.
Lots of good points to work on for the next draft. The visual and the story/setting element got the most positive comments which is good just need to sort out the plot, characters, subplots, secondary characters, props, logic, emotion, grammar, typos…….
Might get a chance to look at it november/december, if not then then next year 2010.
Report gives me lots of concrete things to cogitate. Excellent.
