Screenwriters who direct

On the Guild website I've posted a report on the event earlier this week where a panel of writer-directors discussed taking on that dual role.
Asked about what technical help they had received, [Debbie] Isitt said that when she started she tried to keep things as simple as possible and rely on common sense. “There’s so much mystification of the process,” she said. “It’s hard work, but so are lots of jobs. Directing is about whether you’ve got the mettle to do it. If you’re a wuss, stay at home.”


  1. The "metal"? The mettle, surely?

  3. Ahem. Sorry about that.
