Our last week of filming begins on Saturday. We’re very excited!…... Read more


Tim Clague and I get asked a lot about why we’re co-directing “Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?“. People seem interested (read: dubious) as to how we do it, and how it can possibly work. Co-directing is not a new concept of course, and there are some very high profile co-directors who do just fine (e.g. Coen…... Read more

Out of site

I’ve been having problems with my site recently. First, I couldn’t access the dashboard to update the blog. Now, I can access the dashboard but can’t load the site! Very strange. It’s been tedious and frustrating. Go Daddy will soon be Gone Daddy. I’m not even sure if this post will make it live on…... Read more

UK Scriptwriters Podcast: Writing & Directing

We missed last month’s UK Scriptwriters podcast because we were knee-deep in the first week of filming for “Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?” We’re now a third of the way through the shoot so on the way home from location last weekend, Tim took out his portable sound equipment and we recorded a podcast on the…...

Four writers will…... Read more

Writing For Hollywood

In this special UK Scriptwriters podcast, we chat to Tim John about his seven year spell in Hollywood, writing for film stars such as Schwarzenegger and Bill Murray, and how his family tried to settle into that bizarre part of America known as La-la land… Tim’s written a book about his adventures, which you can…...

Whose Scene Is It?

Re-post from old blog (Narrative Point-of-View) which came to mind (and has been handy) as me & Tim go through the latest draft of Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? — In the development process, it’s not uncommon to be told that the story should be from your hero’s point-of-view. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the…... Read more
