…are just two of our favourite things.
At the end of last year we were asked to write a piece for the IPA about what inspires us.
Which was very flattering. The only snag was that, work being work, we didn’t have very long to do it in. So mine (Lol) ended up about six pages too long. But as Pascale and every great rambler knows, it takes a lot longer to write short things than it does long things!
Not only that, for some unholy reason I have left out two of my favourite screenwriters…
1) Aaron Sorkin – the patron saint of razorsharp dialogue. Although he’s most known for The Social Network, his best work (in my humble opinion) is Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Get the box set if you’ve not seen it!
2) Bruce Robinson, the brilliant brilliant writer of How to get a head in advertising and Withnail and I. I really recommend reading the screenplay – it’s astonishingly written, and there are even more hidden gems in his stage directions.
All disclaimers aside, for anyone that’s interested, here is our piece on what inspires us as a team.
Thank you and a belated happy new year one and all…
