Scheduled for release later this year, Something New Can Come Into This World (And Other Filmmaking Stories) collects together into one volume the first twenty-one essays from Watson’s FictionMachine project and will be available in both print and ebook.
In June 2014, Watson launched FictionMachine, an online series of essays focusing on the production of feature films. Each essay tells the story of how the film was created, the challenges and achievements, and dissects just what makes each of them a particular success. Something New Can Come Into This World will include pieces on such films as Singin’ in the Rain, Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Primer, The Usual Suspects, Ladyhawke and John Carter.
Grant Watson is an Australian award winning playwright and critic. In 2010, he received the Perth Theatre Trust Guild Equity Award for Best New Play for his political drama Cry Havoc. He is a two-time recipient of the William Atheling Jr Award for science fiction criticism and review, including one for his ongoing column “The Bad Film Diaries” in Australian science fiction journal Borderlands.
Collecting together into one volume the first 21 essays from Watson’s FictionMachine project.
