RIP Oliver Postgate 1925-2008 Before all the hi-tech CGI this and Blu ray that, when life seemed a tad slower and less complex, there was a whimsical Film making Magician called Oliver Postgate. A genius of stop-motion, his gentle tales of whistling Moon Aliens, talking Trains and a certain saggy old cloth cat enthralled millions of children in the 50s, 60s, 70s and garnered new generations of young fans with constant TV repeats and DVD sales. Remember the innocent joy of Bagpuss, "The most Magical, Saggy old cloth cat in the whole wide world", Noggin the Nog, Ivor the Engine, The Clangers, Pingwings, The Pogles of Pogles Wood?
Thanks for the childhood memories Oliver, sleep well.
http://www.thewriterstale.com/scr.html Six scripts from the great Sir Russell T. Davies, OBE, including "Midnight" a true Master class (pardon the pun) in tight, gripping writing. Pure Class. Top education. Read them!
Plot, Characters, all 3 acts in half a minute...Jennifer Shiman hilariously re-imagines two hour movies in just thirty seconds, and still retains the major plot points! Pitching masterclass for when that Exec says " You've got half of minute of my time."
