There's a Raindance weekend course on Writing for Comedy coming up on the 8th/9th December, hosted by comedy TV writer Dave Cohen. He's invited me along on the Saturday afternoon to talk about what film companies are looking for in a comedy script. If you're interested in the course, check out the details HERE, and/or have a look at a Q&A with Dave, HERE.
In non-work related news: I have been mourning the recent passing of my iPod. Born in 2004 for a princely sum of £350 (as a treat from my script competition winnings), died in 2007 of a hard drive failure. I'm told it had a remarkable life: two separate Apple stores saying what good condition it was in (er, hello, it's broken!).
They excitedly referred to my iPod as 'old school', as if they were privileged to be holding a long-lost relic of technology. £350 for only 3 years' life. Not good. The price and range of iPods are better nowadays but it's still quite costly (to me anyway), and I'm a bit reluctant to 'upgrade'. I checked out the iTouch and the iPhone but they're not for me. Maybe I'll go with the 8GB Nano or one of the Classics, I haven't made my mind up, but if anyone's got any recommendations about Sony or whatever, just shout (but can I still use my iTunes?).
