There are few filmmakers who engage directly with their fans and audience quite like Edgar Wright. Active both on Twitter and through his own blog, Wright is an open book when it comes to interacting with his followers, and is usually eager to share the process as he develops whatever projects he's working on. And so, one can imagine how in depth an extensive conversation with the filmmaker could go.

The World's End

There are few filmmakers who engage directly with their fans and audience quite like Edgar Wright. Active both on Twitter and through his own blog, Wright is an open book when it comes to interacting with his follower. The filmmaker is usually eager to share the process as he develops whatever projects he's working on and prone to extensive conversations that go well in-depth.

The latest is a one-hour masterclass featuring Wright that has made its way online. Chris Jones hosts the discussion recorded at the London Screenwriters Festival last year, and the talk ranges from Wright's observations about his first feature "A Fistful Of Fingers"; making "Shaun Of The Dead" as both the "Dawn Of The Dead" remake (released within two weeks of his zombie comedy in the U.K.) and "28 Days Later..." were brewing; his writing process and more. For fans or anyone interested in the business, it's worth making the time for. 

Check it out below and of course, "The World's End" is now playing in the U.K. and opens stateside on August 23rd. Bonus round: Check out the interactive screenplay for "Shaun Of The Dead" and Wright's debut feature "A Fistful Of Fingers" in its entirety below.
