ATTN LYNX: This was my favorite trailer for LODGE 49, though not many people saw it. As always a killer track dug up by our ace music supervisor @thomasdynamic.
I miss all these beautiful faces and places. You can watch seasons 1 & 2 on @hulu. #lodge49forever #digginforgold
Dear @OliverDowden . Our Creative Industries helped us through this lockdown. Music, film, TV, streaming theatre, books, art: it helped get us through. They pour billions into the economy: they need financial support now, or they simply won’t be there when lockdown is over.
Question for any WOMEN TV/Film creatives (pre-WGA or pro) who want to answer. Dudes... please just sit this one out.
How often have you had a man explain to you how to do *your* job? I.e If you tell them/they know you’re a TV writer, they then lecture you on how TV is written.
I’m a director. On a location scout, i explained the sequence of shots I wanted for the scene. The DP reminded me that these shots will be edited together and I should think about that..
Replying to @DavidOlusoga: On BBC 4 tonight.
