About Paul

I'm an aspiring screenwriter based in the North of England, UK, developing feature spec scripts.

I primarily write Sci-Fi and Horror themed thrillers and I aim for originality by looking at these established genres from new perspectives.

My list of interesting and inspirational film makers includes Christopher Nolan, The Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Thelma Schoonmaker, Roger Deakins, Nicolas Winding Refn, Guillermo del Toro, Walter Murch, Woody Allen, Charlie Kaufman, Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman, Luc Besson, Tim Burton, Danny Boyle and Alex Garland.

I'm slowly reading my way through the books and stories of Alice B. Sheldon, Iain M. Banks and Neil Gaiman as well as the SF Masterworks Series.
