They say opportunities are like buses... After posting the one for IPTV yesterday, here's a couple more to feast your eyes on.
Scottish soap River City is looking for a Script Editor. If it wasn't set in Glasgow, I'd be biting their hands off, but everyone knows you gotta eat haggis every day up there as it's a matter of national pride and anyway, kilts were so last year dah-link (as David Bishop and Miss Read know). But if you're not into fashion and love eating sheep's intestines, go for it with my blessing. Check it out here. Many thanks to the lovely Marc Pye for the heads-up, who's a veteran writer on the show.
Secondly, Thom Poole of Electric Sky Productions, Brighton, has got in touch about his documentary project:
The project I am working on is a documentary for a Major broadcaster (sorry to be cloak and dagger it’s just that it hasn’t been fully commissioned yet so can’t really go into too much detail) about people who have Imaginary friends.
It isn’t going to be a ‘shocking’ documentary, more an exploration of what it is like to have an Imaginary Friend as an Adult. How does it effect day to day life? Do they let other people know about them? Do they come from a feeling of isolation or loneliness? Are they just someone who is around in the background who can be called upon to mull things over with?
So if you feel you could contribute or know anyone who could please feel free to get in touch.
If you're interested in contributing to a documentary about this intriguing subject, you can contact Thom on firstname.lastname@example.org or via the website.
Lastly, hello to Ellin Stein, my colleague at Metlab and fellow script reader. Ellin has a rather fabulous article in last week's Telegraph about screenwriters being the "Cinderellas" of the filmmaking industry. Click here to read it.
