About David

FINALIST BAFTA ROCLIFFE NEW WRITING 2013 (film)

My screenplay 'ALMO' was announced as a finalist for the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum 2013. "Highly commended, displays real potential and an interesting voice" BRNW 2013 (film)

"David's writing has a sense of polish with neatly drawn moments of physical comedy interspersing the comedic dialogue...a great range." BAFTA

"Demonstrates wit and craft, conveys important and urgent political points with humour and energy." ice&fire (patron Juliet Stevenson)

Film screenplays, TV sitcom scripts, sketch shows and monologues; many of my scripts have been produced and broadcast on stage and on local radio. J

Lucky to have a friend and mentor in BAFTA award winning scriptwriter Julie Rutterford -'Shameless', 'Life on Mars', 'Hustle', 'Trollied', 'Ripper Street'.

I would really love to team up with a like-minded screenwriting partner to create new films, particularly those of a sci-fi genre such as BRNWF2013 shortlisted 'ALMO'.

Specialities: sci-fi film screenplays, situation comedy scripts and comedy sketch show contributions.
