From the teacher's notes

From Howard Schuman's notes on "why I wrote Skinny Marink": "After the joy of working on Young Jung two years ago, I wanted to write another piece for Scene. Skinny Marink arose out of discussions with Richard Langridge, Andy Rowley and Paul Robinson. The difficulty so many men experience in sharing their fears with each other and with women, seemed logically to begin in adolescence - this seemed fertile ground for a film. (...)

"The title came to me when I remembered my Polish grandmother calling a weedy cousin of mine a 'Skinny Marink'. I could imagine this pathetic creature existing in a teenage boy's deepest nightmares: representing his most secret fears about himself." - Scene teacher's notes spring 1997 p.38.
