About

I’m an experienced scriptwriter, director, script editor and script consultant. This website contains details of available and completed scripts. Along with projects and information about articles and publications.

Hailing from God’s County (Yorkshire) in England, I completed my BA in English and Drama at York University. As an actor and filmmaker, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for over thirty-five years. I’ve written and directed many films from shorts, documentaries and features including my first Call of the Hunter. This was a low-budget, but a successful comedy horror movie. Fotoautomat Man (Co-written with O’neil Sharma) a mockumentary comedy set in Berlin, and released in 2020. My last project was adapting a script from Ian McKnight crime-thriller novel The Devil Finds Work.

I Came From The Future produced by Apeiron Films is a sci-fi short currently on the festival circuit. My latest screenplay The Kamenka Experiment won Best Feature Screenplay at Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival and Best Horror Screenplay at iHOLLY International Film Festival.

Whilst writing a script I often create a ‘movie poster’ to help as part of the visualization process. All the posters for scripts in progress are my own.

As a lover of time management, I compiled a book and course entitled ‘Managing your time and become happy’ – Why? –  Because the subject has amused, confused and helped me over my career. There is additionally a series of articles to support this on my LinkedIn page.

Currently, I am a Festival Director for the Berlin Sci-fi Filmfest, the first of its kind in Germany. We had a very successful first two year and 2019 is already shaping up to be bigger and better.
