It’s a week after the shoot and my film - The Good, The Bad And The Tennis - is in the home straight. It is about three years since my last film and the nerves preceding this shoot seemed to have helped enormously. Never have I planned so well for a shoot. Even though I knew the script and what I wanted to see - I did write it after all - having decided to use non-actors in all the roles, I knew I had to be able to get my ideas across clearly.
As an aspiring screenwriter, I, like may sometimes get caught up in the haughty conceit of thinking of film sequels as a tasteless, feeble and gratuitous attempts to elicit the hard earned from the film-going masses.
