Peter Blogdanovich time!
A very enjoyable evening, Watson is certainly an interesting character. Fascinating stories about him reporting in Sarajevo: he reported nightly for 10 European broadcasters in a 3 minute slot. If only I were a bit braver I wanted gauge Watson's opinion on the coverage portrayed in Haiti and how BBC and Sky News at times falsely dramatised conflicts and fighting amongst Haitians. PW came across as a tad pessimistic claiming "TV is dead" not the most encouraging words!
Was also good to meet the UCA Dean and feeding back on our course.
Had an awesome on Sunday day with mates in London literally talking films and TV for hours and found my production crew and cast for my project trailer.
Also helping on the edit for a friend of a friend- They are first time film makers who shot a documentary about graffiti and how first time offenders, who are talented young creatives and students in Brighton can be imprisoned for up to a year. An interesting concept. I'll keep you posted.
A new game we invented yesterday: 3 Names - Guess the film.
