Eoin Colfer did a full TV interview last night, and it’s free for download from the RTE website.
The interview talks about a fair few things. Here’s a quick run through of the topics:
- Colfer’s childhood influences, such as the stories his Dad used to tell and his favorite book; Huckleberry Finn.
- The reason that Colfer really does love the Artemis graphic novel.
- The character of Artemis Fowl and his developing personality.
- Colfer’s experience as a teacher and his decision to become a writer.
- The difference between boy and girl readers, and even between child and adult readers.
- Airman; “If I had to be remembered in 100 years… this one would be the one.” Colfer is happier with this book than he ever was with any other, so it must be good!
- Colfer’s writing process.
- The movie; Companies still arguing over CGI vs live action. Tribeca wants CGI and Harvey Weinstein wants live action.
- Half Moon Investigatios TV series being developed by the BBC!!
