About Martyn

Quick bio update:

38 years old; I currently reside in Cape Town, South Africa. Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

Decided that seeing the words on the screen is my creative direction. Screenwriting is a means to that end but I'm no longer walking the path of a screenwriter, or to be more precise, solely screenwriting.

I've started a small production company with my fellow creative co-conspirator Chris Maltby called The Potted Wolf. We're currently working on music videos in collaboration with Kaneda Records, including productions for Badger and Mausoleums.

We're currently developing a script for our first short film production while putting together cast and crew.

Additionally, I'm also working with another contact back in England on a separate short film.

I'm hoping to put together a short film production in Cape Town in the next year or two.

Feel free to drop me a message if you'd like to discuss anything in relation to my profile or anything film industry related. Just a heads-up - due to work and life commitments, I don't have enough time to do any reading exchanges, although I might be able to provide more practical tips on things like crowdfunding, etc.

This spirit is known as a Mara. The film Nightmares shows the story of 3 people who are each visited by a Mara in their dreams. The Mara makes them each experience their worst nightmare.
