Video: David Seidler

This is one of those years when I feel the Academy has been just in the way the statuettes have been distributed. Yeah, I would have liked to see TS3 win in every category it was nominated in but The King’s Speech is a fabulous movie, too.

Much like The King’s Speech, the movie itself, the story of the writer David Seidler is one of hope for all you writers who are trying to overcome the obstacles that are holding you back from breaking through. Here is a short interview introducing the writer and the background of the story.

Be inspired!
