    I produced DRAGONSLAYER and wanted to thank you for the incredibly insightful and considered review you gave it from LFF. It truly moved me.

      Hi John

      I saw you talk yesterday at the screening. I should have said hello afterwards, not least because I thought the film you guys have made would go down really well with a lot of my students at the university where I teach. Plus because I should spend more time trying to show my own films to people…

      Nonetheless, it is great to hear from you – and many thanks for the positive comment…!

      William
