I am a Writer, Producer, and Director, specialising in corporate work and short-form comedy.
My goal in life is to make great films that people will take to their heart and watch every few years for the rest of their lives. I hope to arrive at greatness with a combination of tight, smart, entertaining storytelling, dry humour, and (just) enough thematic meaning to make a statement about life / the universe / everything…
I also stage Manage the London Screenwriter’s Festival - the world’s largest professional screenwriting event, and Chris Jones’ incredibly popular Guerilla Filmmaker’s Masterclass events. And I work at the British Independent Film Awards as the ‘Voice of God’ (not my choice of title – but I’m not complaining…).
My favourite films include (in no particular order):
Back To The Future (1985) / It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) / The Italian Job (1969) / Withnail & I (1987) / Singin’ In The Rain (1952) / Blade Runner (1982) / Tootsie (1982) / Monty Python & Holy Grail (1975) / Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) / Terminator (1984) / Moonstruck (1987) / Groundhog Day (1993) / Enter The Dragon (1973) / Robocop (1987) / Casablanca (1942) / Toy Story (1995) / Roger Dodger (2002)
(I could happily chat about any of these for several hours at a time)
