People are always asking me when I’m going to start ‘writing’ again, to which I invariably reply: “Who do you think writes my films?” I’m still writing, it’s just that I’m currently doing a different type of writing.
I have a brand new animation – finished on Monday – which I thought might be of interest because it is very much hot-off-the-press and topical.
