"Screenwriting is not the glamorous profession it’s made out to be," explains award-winning film and television scriptwriter Clive Dawson in this candid interview. "It’s a hard slog, with few rewards and a great deal of heartache. However, the enjoyment is to be found in the process, not the end result, and just occasionally, it’s worth the effort."
A professional screenwriter for over 20 years, Dawson has written countless hours of TV episodes for UK television and contributed to top-rated ITV and BBC dramas. Three of his screenplays have been produced into major motion pictures, with another 3 in pre-production or development.
