My desire is to be a writer and director, and I work towards this goal every day by writing, editing, reading, and studying.
In the last year, I have completed three drafts for three feature films. I'm currently working on two of those and redrafting the stories.
I've just moved to the Isle of Iona, in the Hebrides of West Coast Scotland. In November, my plan is to move to Glasgow to commence production and seek a team of filmmakers to make my directing and writing debut short film! If any Scottish filmmakers out there see this and want to meet up to either socialise or work together let me know!

Door to the Past
Drama by Otello Calvert, Ned Champain Writer, Co-Director A young man out walking discovers an old bunker, with an old, lone standing door inside. Upon its inspection, he discovers sounds coming from the other side, and despite it standing alone, he decides to enter and discover what was on the other side, only to be confronted by a full-on war zone that invisible to the eye and plays out in the young man's eyes. In an attempt to escape the sounds he leaves the bunker, but to no avail. He is trapped in his mind and in his past of the memories and experiences that he cannot escape. Psychological surrealism explored through physical manifestations of the mind. That is the aim of the film. To bring awareness to the trauma that soldiers go through to serve their country.
