Just one more thing about Neil Gaiman

Posted at 6:13 PM on October 6, 2008 by Euan Kerr

It's not often I get to dress up while on assignment. But when I was out reporting the Neil Gaiman story a couple of weeks ago it was great fun to put on the bee-suit which is meant to protect you from the bees once they realize you are in fact pinching their honey.

In a moment of vanity I asked one of the others to take a picture of me attempting an interview while still encased in the aforementioned suit.

Neil Gaiman was game and began telling about an important lesson he learned from Robert Zemeckis on the set of "Beowulf."

Gaiman was there in his role as scriptwriter. Zemeckis told him how he had learned from another older director that whenever you are having your picture taken, you should be pointing.

The pointing indictes that you are the director. It doesn't matter that you aren't pointing at anything, you just have to point.

Which is the explanation behind the picture at left.
