I am an experienced scriptwriter, director, script editor and script consultant. This website has details of available and completed scripts. plus 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 have 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 successful comedy horror movie. Fotoautomat Man (Co-written with O’neil Sharma) a mocumentary comedy set in Berlin is due for release in 2020. My last project is adapting the script from the book The Devil Finds Work written by Ian McKnight.
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 wrote 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 also 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.
