The Pitch Industry Judge
Films invite viewers into new worlds. Every time I start watching a film, it reminds me of being a young child on Christmas Eve… full of anticipation, hope and excitement. They can make the familiar strange, and bring the strange close. They can make you laugh, cry and think.
Too many to choose from - but without thinking:
It’s A Wonderful Life - Hopeful comic genius
The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring) - Epic and memorable storytelling
The Matrix - Layers upon layers
A memorable story with an original perspective, strong plot and unexpected twist.
I hugely enjoyed serving on film juries at the Cannes, Berlin and Venice International Festivals, watching, thinking about and discussing films in a competitive and creative setting.
Looking forward to: Watching, learning and discussing...
Star Wars - just.
Make it beautiful. Make it arresting. Make it original.
