Award-winning screenwriter John MacInnes talks to Tracy about his new real-time movie challenge just launched – its a contest with a very interesting difference, using Unreal Engine 5. Its all about mis-en-scene… “the skill, the challenge, is to actually reproduce a tone or a feeling and affect the audience… there’s something really challenging and valuable in that exercise in itself…” And the end result? Well, its a meta-movie of course! Oh, and did we mention the prizes…?!
