Well chuffed to note that I’ve been commissioned by The Lives of the Dissidents project to write the script for a 10-minute animation about Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German Protestant pastor who resisted Adolf Hitler and after a
long imprisonment was eventually executed by the Nazis in 1945. Other films in the series will highlight others who resisted state power, such as Martin Luther King, Victor Jara and Sophie Scholl.
This is the first time I’ve scripted an entirely animated film. Once the script is complete, the animation is scheduled to go into production in 2015.
Now I’m going to celebrate with a nice cup of tea.
