I updated the gallery with the images provided by the MIPTV clip. These images show exactly why I needed to make a separate ‘blog’ as such, as they are nowhere near PG rated or even 15! sooo…again be warned 😉
Disclaimer: I really truly don’t have any copyright infringement in mind by posting these. Since I was allowed to share the clip by MIPTV, I figured the same applied for the caps from the clip.
However if there’s any problem please let me know and I’ll remove them asap!
I did ask permission from the MIPTV team if it was ok to share this, and they said yes! (so again no copyright infringement intended) (got tweets to prove this 😉 )
Please watch the whole clip as it’s really interesting what Paul has to say about modern day TV & how he works & trains with new writers. He didn’t mention Twenty8k specifically but did talk about the difference writing for Television and Films.
At around 6.00 minutes they show a new preview clip for Hit & Miss, which I think will be shown on SkyAtlantic shortly. And *coughs* yes Jonas Armstrong does feature in the clip. 😛
UPDATE: Read the entire LiveBlog: HERE (Paul Abbott about working on the project) 😀
Some quotes from the LiveBlog:
“You don’t feed the market what it wants. My belief is you’re meant to take an audience to an unexpected place,” said Abbott.
“Life treads on your toes, and we keep writing drama like it’s linear screenwriting”
“Paul Abbott just called the protagonist of Hit & Miss “a glock with a c*ck“! It’s about a transsexual hitman who is both mum & dad“
“A ludicrous clashing of concepts“
Hit and Miss has been sold to Australia (ABC2) , New Zealand (TVNZ) & Israel (HOT) today. And it was already sold to USA (DirectTV) last year! =D Congratulations & hope more countries will buy the rights as well!
Many thanks to MipTV for posting the session transcript online! 😀
Another interview with Paul Abbott : HERE
“I was initially writing it for Laura Ziskin, so I now need to take my time writing it properly and then defend it to the hilt. You have to know where the main cake mix is before you move it around…a transsexual hitman is a bazooka tagline, for example, but you have to back it up. She has to be a convincing character.”
