GDT

Spent a very enjoyable two hours last night in the company of Guillermo Del Toro who was taking part in an onstage interview for BAFTA: A Life In Pictures series. Interviewed by Jason Wood, the articulate and loquacious Mexican talked about everything from his childhood, his time at film school, right through each of his movies. He was, as usual, erudite, funny and wonderfully course. And talkative. In fact, the event ran so long that there was only time for two audience questions — one of which, inevitably, was about The Hobbit. The event was filmed and will, at a later date, be available to view via the bafta website.

just checking in and irrationally demanding updates even if the updates are just that there are updates coming soon or that updates are delayed because you're drunk at the pub (the one with internet access) or updates that there are no updates because you're all movie'd out for the day and you've been on the set of (insert semi-famous but well liked director here) with (major movie starlet) and talked with (famous script writer) about what it's like to work with said director on a soon to be released oscar worthy (from what you saw) attempt at (insert movie genre).
