William Brandt

Actor, Writer

Actor and writer William Brandt was born to confuse. He has acted in films about writers, produced docos, and written novels about the film industry (The Book of the Film of the Story of My Life). Brandt began in acting, starring in comedy User Friendly and TV movie Undercover, and romancing Janet Frame in Angel at my Table. His reinvention as a writer began with 1992 play Verbatim, and includes episodes of Shortland Street.

It's true that you cannot make a good film without a good script, but at the same time a good script does not equal a good film. Other things have to happen. William Brandt, in a 2004 interview on website Lumiere
