At the recent Screenwriters Festival in Cheltenham, I spoke to five screenwriters for a feature that can be found in this week's Time Out. Due to space considerations, however, the piece was edited down to just two questions/answers each, but the full transcript can be found at http://www.timeout.com/film/features/show-feature/3200/cheltenham-screenwriters-festival.html. I urge you to check it out, not least for Diana Ossana's work regime — "In my bedroom, in my bed, in my pyjamas. I sit on top of the duvet with my laptop. And my puppies in the bed" — but also for Harry Potter And The Order of The Phoenix's screenwriter Michael Goldenberg's ode to Galaxy Quest, a film that we both agree is a work of much overlooked genius.
