GHOST WRITER: SHORT FILM
Ghost Writer is a 24-minute one-off drama, written by me and produced by the TAPS organisation in 2009. It's about love, death and letting go.
It was a great experience, from which I learnt a lot about the necessary economies of time and money in TV production. I wrote the script under several technical restrictions. Such as:
1) A maximum of three locations (although that craftily became four on the day)
2) A maximum of six characters.
3) A maximum of 20 scenes.
4) No special effects or anything too technically demanding.
5) The whole thing had to be shot in four hours!
Director Guy Slater (Miss Marple) assembled a fine cast in Barrie Ryan English, Fiona Wass, Seamus O'Neill, Lisa Brookes and Giles Ford.
