I’m transitioning from running record labels, via writing a book about David Bowie, to writing grounded genre features. Smart movies that kick you in the head.
I’m aiming at fans of Get Out, Arrival, Split, 10 Cloverfield Lane or The Prestige.
I’ve completed 6 screenplays that I am happy with; one that I like and everyone else seems not to; and a lot more in various stages of development.
The films that make me get up and write are:
The Usual Suspects
Stranger Than Fiction
Grosse Pointe Blank
The Manchurian Candidate
North By Northwest
An American Werewolf In London
CALL OF JUDY
When her timid son is lost in a personalised VR-gaming experience, a technophobe mom must follow him in and master the infernal videogames she hates to free him.
DO YOU EVER HEAR VOICES, BOB?
A dry comedy about water. A nervous scientist suffers blackouts when his inner thoughts are hijacked by a frighteningly smart voice who perfects his world-saving invention but has used him to create something more troubling.
