'A screenwriting friend who has recently seen the release of his latest film was chatting with me about the experience of being on set - as co-producer he was present for his film's whole shoot. When I asked him about a particular actor, the star of his film, he said - well, he's an actor. You know what they're like. They're anxious. They always want to know what you think. They need you to tell them how good they are, all the time.'  (Introduction)

This magazine was never intended as a literary puma\ and, as a result, did not meet the funding criteria of the time.
