Paul Tyler, Handling Ideas

I’ve felt more like a participant than a co-mentor whilst working alongside Miryam at the Concept Atelier for television series at the Flemish Film Fund in Brussels for the past four years. Her mentoring skills are phenomenal. I marvel at her competence, knowledge and abilities to grab both texts and writers by the heels and draw them back to the source of their work. She prevents us all from resting our feet on the floor as tropes, metaphors and cliches are rooted out like invasive species. If you’re lucky enough to get time with Miryam, then get a good night’s sleep the night before.
