Post screening, the director made his way once more to the front of a sold out Savoy cinema and along with John Maguire from The Sunday Business Post, held a Q&A session for around 15 minutes. Again, full of humour, humility and oodles of wit Whedon not only entertained by was absolutely inspiring. He spoke at length about his take on Much Ado About Nothing, explaining it was shot in his house and that he changed a few words around as well, including replacing the word “Jew” with “fool” and continued on with a great line stating “So additional dialogue by Joss Whedon”.
When asked for some hints, tips and a bit of insight when it comes to writing, Whedon replied “I am literally the worst person in the world to answer that question”. He did go on though to talk about his father and grandfather who of course wrote widely for TV. And of course there was a question about the Avengers sequel to which Whedon is promising “Death, Death and more Death” and also said that while he can’t make it bigger, he can make it better. A huge standing ovation seem to blow Whedon away as the crowd stayed on its feet until he left.
All in all, it was a rather fantastic Q&A with Joss Whedon receiving a being on hilarious top form and being nothing but an inspiration.
We shot a brief bit of video of Joss accepting the Volta award. You can check that out below!
