I was lucky enough to make my first visit to Frankfurt Book Fair this year along with my lovely editor (of Words with Jam) Jane Dixon-Smith.
We were fortunate to get a private interview with Sir Richard Taylor of Weta Workshop fame. He was such an enthusiastic and lovely guy, and after an hour listening to his stories of Narnia, Lord of the Ring, King Kong, I was completely in awe.
The full interview will feature in December’s issue of the magazine.
But as a taster, see below, for my favourite quote of the day:
“In every great film, there must be great story-telling first and foremost. A beautiful story is vital. And in every epic you must be able to find the intimate.”
Sir Richard Taylor, October 12th 2012.
