I'm a seasoned screenwriter, film lecturer and script consultant. I've been optioned or commissioned by over 30 US and UK studios and production companies including: Universal Studios, Working Title, Bold Films, Scott Free, BBC and ITV. Recent produced credits include the award-winning motion picture An Act of Defiance (2017) and the not-so-award winning Hard Target 2 (2016)…
I'm a card-carrying member of the WGA; over the years, I’ve been repped by eight literary agents, 3 managers, and attorney... I’m still repped by a manager in LA, and have a brace of projects in active development. However, in truth, I’m now much more interested in teaching and sharing the knowledge I’ve picked up over the years, rather than spending another decade chained to my writing desk and locked in my imagination. As fun as that can be, at times…
I’ve been teaching filmmaking in China and at one of the London film schools; I recently set up a You Tube Channel SCRIPTFELLA, which is devoted to Screenwriting, Storytelling and all things Hollywood.
If you're writer or filmmaker with ambitions to break into Hollywood, you might want to check out my series of film biz vids:
