Went along to the BFS open night on Friday. Good laugh, much better than the disastrous March open night where only about three people turned up.
Topics of conversation included:
Seeing that as David Tennant's Dr Who is written as a sex god does Sylvester McCoy resent his stint as the character not being given the same treatment?
What stuff scared you as a kid? (For me it was Dr Who, the BBC version of The Day of the Triffids and the 50s version of The Invasion of The Body Snatchers.)
How exactly will Michael Bay fit his required amount of explosions (at least fifteen) into his remake of The Birds?
And what would be the most pointless remake Hollywood could produce? My money is on a shot-by-shot remake of Gus Van Sant's version of Psycho.
Plus, due to the large amount of writers present, a lot of whinging about there not being enough markets for stories. Translated this means, "My story has been rejected so many times I've run out of people to send it to."
