 examples of my work

 

 writing 

In 2008 I was long-listed for the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Award alongside Katie Boyles and Graham Trelfer for the Television comedy/drama script 'Climbing Frame.'
Since then I've been commissioned to write short films, script edit pilots, shorts and features as well as give numerous notes on various scripts.
 film 
I have 2 feature film projects i'm developing
 LonDoN to Neverland 
I'm currently developing a feature length dark modern fantasy based around J.M. Barrie's 'Peter Pan.'
With this in mind I directed 'Tooth Fairy' a short film that introduces us to principal characters as well as giving a taste of the world the feature inhabits.
The short was released in May 2017 and toured the Festival Circuit stopping first at the Cannes Festival Short Film Corner.
 the key 
The Key is a supernatural horror/comedy.
 
An original feature, it centres on a couple that discover a key which can open any door but always leads to the same mysterious and ancient room.

Influenced by films like Gremlins and Ghostbusters but with a wholly British feel I'm hoping to develop it further this year.
 television 
I have one original treatment I'm developing for television
Ayslum is set in the near future where conservative policiticans have forced vulnerable, creative and dangerously insane people into shared blocks to deal with budgetary restrictions.
Father Ted meets 1984.
