A political scientist and research analyst (graduate of KCL, UCL, SOAS, LSJ among other courses) by profession turned to screenwriting and film&TV related research.
With an extensive research experience (primarily political and social but also risk and business orientated) in various roles and in more than one countries mainly from 2004 to 2012, I am now at the beginning of my involvement with screenwriting while I also look to gain experience and work within any aspect of research for film, TV and any other related production for documentary and fiction programmes.
I completed my first short film LUCY (Writer/Producer) back in Dec 2015 with a fair list of selections given the low budget and the entirely private production with some distinctions already. At the same time I m looking to increase my experience in certain aspects of film and I can travel and easily relocate for the purposes of a project between Athens where I currently reside, the UK and Europe.
I am currently writing my second commissioned feature script having completed my first commissioned script (details below) in June.
The projects listed are my main filmmaking experience and involvement thus far whilst I have completed further 3 short script, a feature script treatment a two synopses for feature scripts aimed to start at a future time.
The start and my first credit as shown above was my short film LUCY, completed in December 2015 and 2016 was devoted pretty much on the writing of some other projects and managing Lucy's festival submissions and overall promotion.
Since the start of 2017, as you can see above I was fortunate and happy enough to be involved in feature script writing starting with the Blue Room, my first commissioned work and currently the Venom of the Viper, a project that is to be completed by 2018.
Other than the research conducted for my scriptwriting and drawing from my relatively diverse research background between 2005 and 2013, some research-related experience includes the project EarthProSeed as described above as well as for the purposes of the drafting of a TV mini doc series proposal submitted to the Greek ERT network for consideration.
I finally aim at shooting my short script Stasis*, completed earlier this year with a director and a two actors already attached, selected at the finals of a major film festival/script contest in Mexico (further details cannot be revealed at this point).
