Essex Boys - The Working Method

Last Update: 18 April 2000

This is not the first collaboration between Jeff Pope and Terry Winsor. Terry says: "Jeff and I have done several films together for television, and they usually are crime films. ESSEX BOYS marks the cross-over to full gangster movie - an area we are both interested in. There are different stages in the process.

"When writing a script, we [Jeff & I] work together and brain-storm, but we also write separately, and then get together to compare what we have written. We throw around ideas and see what we can come up with. I don't really know how, but it seems to work." Jeff Pope agrees: "We have time both alone with the project, and together. It tends to divide, and (although it's not a hard and fast thing) Terry's great strength is his plotting, and dialogue is something I'm good at."
