Sam Morrison: Greetings
Some of you may be aware that I do some regular co-writing with Sam Morrison (animator/writer/director/Everton fan). Crikey, ever since 2000 in fact, when I script edited a pilot he was doing for Channel 4.
Since then, we've adapted Conrad's War, an award-winning children's book by Andrew Davies ("the script perfectly captures the spirit of the book"), written our much-loved Aliens FC as a script AND a book (getting close to production, publication and awards on numerous occasions), and also written many pilots for various production companies that have been awesome but sadly never been made or gone to series.
If you want to know why I love working with Sam so much, then you simply must check out his latest 5 minute animated short, Greetings. It's about a neurotic card designer who has a rather unorthodox idea for a greetings card, which suitably represents his ever-growing disillusionment with life. Voiced brilliantly by Michael Rosen!
Greetings is up for Shooting People's Film Of The Month so if you're a SP member, please do watch and *LIKE* it to help it win.
Go on, it'll cheer him up. He supports Everton, remember.
