Hi Bethan, thanks for your comment on the Writers' Group. I wondered if you had a particular interest in writers development v theatremakers' development - or another topic - and if you'd like to be a provocateur on the subject? As part of the discussion, we would like 2 or 3 people to kick off the discussion with a couple of minutes talk about their interest in or knowledge and experience of the topic... what do you think? This is about writers having their voices heard, so let me know if you fancy being someone to help kick us off... x
Awesome! where are you working as a runner? I did a lot of running/researching for TV in my first/second year of uni, well stressful - i found project managers and producers would just kinda pass on their angst, and you just have to deal with it, but also the best way of learning a lot quickly. Yeah the real world was a bit of a shock after waleslab, i went straight on to shoot at greenman festival, from a quiet valley for two weeks into thousands of people and lots of noise! definitely missed the regular meals as well :( I dunno if theres going to a screening of the documentary or anything, it will most likely go up on vimeo (https://vimeo.com/lighttrapfilms) when its finished, but would be cool to meet up with everyone again and maybe watch it on a big screen. x
So I'm going through handycam footage from waleslab quite late at night and suddenly all i see is a white mask filling the screen - and your voice saying "nah you gotta do it quickly - like, its a ghost or something!" Good work Casper...
