I made it onto Bafta Crew X BFI Network!
It’s a brilliant opportunity to meet other people in the TV and Film industry and I can’t quite believe I got selected. Big thanks to Lucy Dwyer and Kirsty Smith who nominated me. They’re like the fairy godmothers of the writing community. They would absolutely hate that description. Luckily, I don’t think they’ll see this, so I will let it stand (until they send me a cease and desist notice).
One of the best things about becoming a script writer has been the amazing gang of writer buddies I’ve made. I spend more time with my writing crew WhatsApp group than I do with my family (this is a joke, but also true).
So while I’m here, let me tell you about my my writing crew. (We have been trying to think of a name for ourselves. When we started writing sketch comedy we called ourselves the Sketchy Bitches, but then we toyed with Scarecrows – because we’re outstanding in our field – but for now we remain ‘Writing Crew’ in the WhatsApp.)
Our members are:
Katie Lee (that’s me)
They really are the best bunch of humans: supportive, funny straight-speaking and kind. They give excellent notes and brilliant pep talks. I am grateful every day for having found them. I can’t believe I managed to sneak into their gang.
Anyway, the point of this post was to say I made it onto BAFTA Crew. I’ve already met even more lovely people thanks to the scheme, which has meant even more WhatsApp groups. Soon I won’t have to spend any time with my family at all and will maintain a full social life from the comfort of the spare bed in my office. ?
