FIX THE FILM
I spent years analysing scripts, writing notes and 'fixing' projects as a STORY-MONGER only to find that, if the scripts ever got made, the fuckers had ignored me and filmed unspeakable shite.
It was a trifle frustrating.
So, I stopped, and got a proper job. One with a salary, career progression, and a mystical thing the film-industry regards as akin to a Fantastic Beast that no one can Find - a pension!
Ten-years later and the novelty of paying rent, buying food, and not being screamed at by coked-up creatives, still hasn't worn off.
I'm still OBSSESSED with stories and LOVE movies, TV, Radio -- ANYWHERE you can find a cracking story, thrillingly told, you'll find me analysing, tinkering, and fixing.
Well, me and my partner, who's got a frighteningly high IQ and is a killer STORY-MONGER in her own right.
So, we bought a microphone, a Limitless Card for our local Odeon, and started recording.
Each episode we take a film we don't think works, rip the STORY to bits, and put it back together again so it does.
We FIX THE FILM.
