The winner of our most recent Somerset Film Scriptwriting Competition has now been announced. Congratulations to Alex Butter who created short script 'A Knights Journey' based on the competition theme 'Getting to Glastonbury'. Find out more about Alex and the inspiration about his work below:
I love to writing and recording audio plays and posting them online, with ambitions to write for radio 4. I think this is a great format as you are not limited by anything but the imagination. I have also written several feature and short films.
I had many inspirations for A knight’s journey, firstly the mythical history that surrounds Glastonbury, with King Arthur and the knights of the round table. Many of the stories are tales of hero’s on great adventures battling green men and fighting for true love. Another inspiration was stanza’s by Shakespeare and poems by Chaucer as I wanted to bring in a deep sense of love and loss to the script.
