Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm an award winning director/producer who also lights, writes and teaches.   + live multicamera directing.

In a previous existence, I was a BBC TV director, then Course Leader BA Film Production at AUB, I've  produced, directed or shot over 50 shorts and the films have screened at festivals worldwide.   I completed  a MA Screenwriting  at Bournemouth Uni. and was selected for EIFF Talent Lab 2013.

I've written a load of  shorts and a number of feature screenplays including Phoebe Langtry, a period drama about the woman, who in 1813, built the only surviving working windmill in Hampshire; Best Of Intentions, a World War II romantic action movie and Jack’s Back, a supernatural suspense horror about the return of Jack the Ripper during a theatre performance. (Currently optioned for 2016 production.)

Currently got three shorts out on the festival circuit, am editing another 20 min short filmed in Toronto in July and developing a couple of micro budget features, based on locations and facilities I have access to.

Chasing Fame Film

Our 30min film Chasing Fame is screening on Sunday 6 Nov at 8pm as part of Southampton Film Week.

"UK TV Star Melanie, relaxing in Toronto after her film premiere, becomes involved with a young Canadian fan with disastrous and hilarious consequences."

We filmed it on location in Toronto, Niagara Falls, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, Cannes ..and Southampton.

It was one of the hits of the Toronto Reelheart International Film Festival. We won two awards on the final night screening, including best actress fro Melissa

"Clever comedy of errors ..a breath of fresh air" Lucy V Hay.

Screening at The Stage Door, 78 West Marlands Road Southampton Hampshire SO14 7FW Entrance is free.
oh I forgot to mention. It contains cheeky male nudity. 😉

 

Impact 50 Award Winner

Got this email yesterday.  Congratulations to all the other winners… You guys rocks.   ..and so many of my friends.

"The quality of work submitted to the Impact50 initiative was outstanding, and you should rightly be proud of your script and of your achievement as a writer. We can’t wait to get the ball rolling on the filmmaking phase, and then – further down the line – to celebrate with you all."

 

This email came through just as we were pitching at Cannes and Melissa was saying her embarrassing bit about me being an award winning writer, when I checked my email and said .. "I've just won another award".  ..I just said it without thinking, but I thought afterwards ..That is soo show off.    Still that's what Cannes is about.
