Go to http://varnelis.networkedbook.org
to read a new networked book about networked art curated by Jo-Anne Green and Helen Thorington (Co-Directors, New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. | Turbulence.org).
High Pitch London is a group of script writers focused mainly on film and TV screenplays (but also some writing for the stage) ranging from high farce to gritty drama. It was formed in 2007 from graduates of screenwriting and acting courses at the City Lit.
They meet regularly to critique each others’ scripts, discuss technique and swap information on upcoming opportunities. Take a look at their new website www.highpitchlondon.moonfruit.com and episodes from "Hollywood, We Seem To Have A Problem", Chris Lakeman Fraser's take on the writers' strike. They'll also be serialising new film scripts, so screenwriters can communicate directly with their audience without the bother of actually making a film at all.
Oh, and then there's vook.com, a start up which merges books and video to make something that from what I've seen so far I don't much like the look of... but I'll keep an eye on what they're up to.
