About the Live Stuff

I spend quite a lot of my time talking about screenwriting and filmmaking.

Sometimes this happens at colleges and universities.

Sometimes it happens at one-day screenwriting masterclasses (which are usually awesome and great fun).

Sometimes it happens at film festivals, like the two live shows embedded below.

Please note: both live shows include swearing and some clips that may not be safe for work. Well, depends where you work, I guess. If you work from home, they’re probably safe for there.

Well, unless a kid walks in or something. Either way, just don’t blame me, alright?
