The director of two Truly Moving Picture Award-winning films, Tom Hooper joined us for a brief chat as he eagerly anticipates Oscar season. Tom had previously directed the TMPA winner Longford, and now with The King’s Speech nominated for twelve Academy Awards, including Tom himself for Best Director, we expect to hear a lot more about him and his film in the coming weeks. Tom discussed his role in directing the film, his cast of seasoned British and Australian actors, and shared some insight into the research that went into the film and how it affected the speech therapy King George VI underwent. Thanks to our audience on Facebook and Twitter for suggesting many of the questions we asked!
