Karel Segers wrote his first produced screenplay at age 17. Today he is a story analyst with experience in acquisition, development and production. He has trained students worldwide, and worked with half a dozen Academy Award nominees. Karel speaks more European languages than you have fingers on your left hand, which he is still trying to find a use for in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. The languages, not the fingers.

1 thought on “James Gray is angry. (Audio)”
Good clip – James Gray really does know how to write (and direct) but I worry that his focus is too narrow. When he talks about the lack of craft in today’s US screenwriting, he’s talking as if “screen” and “movies” were synonymous.
What he ignores is the way that TV (especially pay TV) has taken over the challenge of producing well-written screenplays from the movies. Viz. Six Feet Under, Mad Men, The Sopranos, The Wire, etc.
