Guest book


Paul Brown - a famous American screenplay writer and producer of a hit show X Files visits Moscow. Brown is a three time Emmy and Golden Globe nominee and a winner of Edgar Allan Poe award established by the Writers Guild of America specially for mystic writers. Paul Brown also teaches screenplay writing in New York Film Academy. In Moscow he had a few workshops for Russian writers and producers and read lectures about the role of drama in cinematography.

We asked Paul Brown to answer a few questions from the official website of the Moscow tourism and hotel industry committee.

- Mr. Brown, is it your first time in Moscow?        

- No. My first time was two and a half years ago when I arrived on Halloween and was surprised to find out that Russian people celebrate this holiday too. This is my sixth visit. I have been in Moscow for five weeks yet and I am sure that I'll be back again.                            

- What places of interest did you manage to see?       

- For quite a long time I’ve had no opportunity to walk around Moscow on my own in order to see at least half of the places Moscow is so famous for: the Kremlin, the Red Square, the Bolshoi Theatre. This time I've planned my visit to be long enough to know the city better. I say Moscow is a place where you want to come back.           

- What impression did Moscow make on you as a tourist?         

- Moscow destroys the stereotypes about Russia and Russian people who are very welcoming, open-minded and smart. Moscow is a unique city and very much differs from Los-Angeles. The history of Moscow is extremely rich which makes it attractive for tourists.

I am sure the more Americans you draw here, especially those who work in mass media, the better idea about Moscow people all over the world will have and the more tourists you will get. The informative image of Moscow will change. 

But there is one thing for a tourist in this city, which is key: here a foreign person needs a good guide who is not one hundred percent necessary in Europe. I am sure that volunteer service could help solve this problem. For instance we have volunteers in Santa-Monica and tourists can always ask them for help. It would be great to have such people in Moscow too. Moscow people are still not that fluent in English but that is easy to fix.
