Based on this success I was flown to Tuscany to direct a stage show to a live audience of four thousand that was simultaneously broadcast on Italian television.
As a screenwriter, I have sold three feature film screenplays and numerous short film scripts to international production companies, and have also worked for a Los Angeles talent agency for a year as a Story Analyst.
I Directed Tobias Menzies in my multi-award winning film, The Velvet Abstract, an environmental short produced on six continents, and featuring visual effects talents from Star Wars, The Hunger Games, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar, Lost, Game of Thrones, The Martian, and many more. Scored by the world-renowned Composer Jean-Pascal Beintus (The Danish Girl, Argo, Harry Potter, The Imitation Game), the film was part of a recent BAFTA event where I was a Speaker on stage for a live Q&A. The film won 20 awards, including 14 for Best Film. More about the film and festival news can be found on the official website www.thevelvetabstract.com
My other short film drama, The Inuring, screened at the Oscar qualifying Rhode Island Film Festival, and picked up 20 awards at 60 film festivals – a one in three win ration. These awards included Best UK Short Film, Best Director, three times, Best Narrative Short Film, and Best in Show. More about the film can be found on the official website: www.theinuring.com
I have been fortunate to work with some amazing talent during my career and I have received some lovely feedback.
An update to my reel is currently being developed and will feature clips from the following productions.
