About Paul

Currently, Paul runs his own production company, Crooked Hand Productions, writing and producing original stage plays.

He is directing his first TV pilot film, 'The Monochrome Spy' (2014) and is also supervising post-production.

He recently produced a featurette for UK music legend, Steve Hackett (Genesis, documenting the musician's love of C.S. Lewis), 'Steve Hackett: A Visit To The Kilns' (2014)

He created the popular spoof-documentary, 'Mr No Kiss-Kiss, Bang-Bang' (2014) in which he plays an alternate universe Patrick McGoohan who decides to agree to play James Bond 007 in Dr No with disastrous results.

As a performer on stage he was awarded best Actor for Leicestershire and Rutland in their One-Act Festival (2014) - he also won for Best Original Play for 'Wall No,.4'.

In 2012, Paul's debut stage play, 'Magic Number 6', based on the behind-the-scenes drama between Patrick McGoohan and Lew Grade before and during the making of the cult TV classic 'The Prisoner', was warmly received by the show's fan-base and ran for 12 performances, including a week at the Edinburgh International Arts Festival in 2013.

From 2010-13 Paul researched and created an adapted screenplay based on C.S. Lewis's Cosmic Trilogy novels, 'The Disappearance of Edward Price', which had interest from Hollywood by Producer Ralph Winter.

Previously, Paul was short-listed as a new writer for 'Thunderbirds Are Go'! for ITV and worked with US Actor Ed Asner on his student short project, 'The Life and Times of Archie Flint' (1990).
