January 20, 2020

Brian Dunnigan is a writer and filmmaker from Edinburgh. He is the author of the new book ‘Screenwriting is Filmmaking’ and was the head of the London Film School’s screenwriting programme for twelve years. In this episode William met with Brian in London to discuss the Michael Haneke film ‘The White Ribbon’, which won the Palme d’Or at Canne in 2009. We also hope you enjoy the twenty minutes of bonus content at the end in which we discuss some of Brian’s advice and teachings to screenwriters in his new book.
