"Screenplays are worse than the new novel, they're like the macram? of the 21st century," screenwriter/director Scott Treleaven once remarked. "While I was working on writing my treatment, people would ask me what I was up to. When I told them about it they'd invariably say 'Oh cool, me too.'
"It was incredibly belittling to be at home, sweating blood, trying to hammer out something I felt was both genuine and intriguing, only to have someone tell me that they were basing their screenplay characters on their girlfriend's cats."
