Charlie Fletcher has worked in film editing for the BBC on everything from Drama to Current Affairs. He's written screenplays for Tri-Star, MGM, Paramount and Warner Bros, among others. He continues to write for the movies, and also television. He still thinks that being a film editor is a pretty damn fine way to learn about story-telling in general, and narrative structure and pacing in particular. Charlie also moved into other types of writing including magazine features, a computer game and as both a national Sunday newspaper columnist and restaurant reviewer.
