CLASSROOM: Learning from Screenwriter Tony McNamara and How He Created ‘The Favourite’
Australian screenwriter Tony McNamara is a BAFTA winner and an Academy Award nominee for last year’s period black comedy, The Favourite. He called television his home for a long time, writing TV episodes for over ten different shows and dipping only occasionally into a film. This most recent foray paid off very well, although it took a while to get there.
He recently sat down with BAFTA Guru to discuss his writing process, what it was like to write on The Favourite, and how he has made a living as a writer.
