First 10 Minutes: "He Kills Coppers"

Red Planet Prize Project 8 - The First Ten Pages

He Kills Coppers by Ed Whitmore (based on the book by Jake Arnott)

"The time constraints are huge but the strength of Ed’s adaptation is that he has concentrated much more on the emotional motivation and energy of the characters. After all, that is what has to drive viewers through three one hour episodes. I think in the novel there is more opportunity to talk about what’s going on around the characters, to present some of the historical perspective, whereas in a scene you have about three minutes to establish where you are."
