Day One at eQuinoxe
Snow began to fall at about midnight last night and continued through the day. Â Slow, lovely and steady. Â There’s maybe three + feet all around. It’s was quite magical and just the day to read a script in front of the fire! Looks like an early Christmas card.
The advisors all arrived today. Â We attended a wonderful jazz concert at Schloss Elmau, which is renown for its music, literature and art programs. Â That’s why the place is such a great fit for the eQuinoxe workshops. Â It’s a great atmosphere of culture and creativity.
We had a lovely get-to-know you dinner with all the advisors. Â I’ll be working with Kit Carson (Paris, Texas), Claire Dobbin (Australian Film Commission), David Keating (Last of the High Kings, Into the West), Anthony McCarten (Death of a Super Hero), Susanne Schneider (The Day Will Come), Martin Sherman (Mrs. Henderson Presents) and Time Squyers (Ang Lee’s long-time editor).
It’s a wonderful group and we will meet tomorrow to begin discussion of the scripts in the workshop. Â Let the passionate debates begin!
