Episode 43: Andrew Ellard Interview
December 18, 2014 06:50 AM PST
This podcast we spend over an hour talking to script editor Andrew Ellard. We felt these extra length was worth the level of his insights into some of your favourite shows. Plus we couldn't shut him up. Here is how he describes himself -
"I'm a writer and script editor. I’ve worked on various shows including Red Dwarf, The IT Crowd and Miranda. I also offer (paid) rewrite notes for your script. You may know me from Twitter (@ellardent) having seen my opinion/review #tweetnotes."
We recorded this at the Royal Festival Hall, so you get free background music with this one.
Lastly, Merry Christmas and hope 2015 is a good one for your writing projects.Episode 42: Structure
