Even though I have a background in journalism and writing, and a passion for the arts, I had never considered writing a screenplay until it fell in my lap so to speak after I conducted research into my family's history. What I discovered was a story that needed to be told.
As such, in 2019, I wrote my first screenplay (drama feature) which is based on a true story.
To my delight and astonishment, I was then honoured to be awarded the following:
- Winner - Best First Time Screenwriter L.A. Film Awards 2019;
- Finalist - Best Screenplay L.A. Film Awards 2019;
- Third - Capital Fund Screenplay Competition 2019 (U.S.); and
- Quarter finalist - The Monthly Film Festival August – September 2019 Screenplay Competition (Britain).
In 2020, during lockdown, I wrote an animation/musical feature screenplay which includes my original music as I also have a background in this field.
Thus far, 2021 has been positive. My animation/musical feature has received the following:
- Winner of Best Comedy Screenplay Feature, Best Script Awards 2021 organised by GOLDEN ART (London);
- Winner, Honorable Mention Best Feature Screenplay, L.A. Film Awards 2021;
- Screenplay Finalist, L.A. Film Awards 2021; and
- Winner of Honorable Mention Best Animation Feature Screenplay, Genre Star Awards 2021 (U.S.A.).
I am currently working on its sequel.
Furthermore, I have completed a drama/romance/comedy feature. It was a finalist in the L.A. Film Awards 2021 and won Best Romance Feature Screenplay.
I have also completed a biopic which won a L.A. Film Award for Best Feature Screenplay.
I am so proud to say that my projects have an edge that make them stand out, even if they may sometimes be confronting.
As is indicative of the international accolades I have received, I believe that my screenplays' inspiring, evocative and entertaining content can connect with audiences worldwide.
