Check out my new gig atClever Films!CEO James Dalyand his partners in horrific crime are producing a slate of intriguing horror movies following his horror producer debut with Let Us Prey, starring Liam Cunningham (‘Game of Thrones’) and Pollyanna McIntosh (‘The Walking Dead’). I am excited to have been offered a creative role as a script analyst and an opportunity to head the company’s ambitious social responsibility program – spending a generous portion of each film’s budget on social enterprise schemes that support marginalized people around the world.
Although Clever Films doesn’t accept unsolicited scripts, I’m happy to receive a one-page pitch! I rarely sleep and when I do, I tend to dream in horror anyway, so… 💁♀️
WOW! Can’t believe it’s been an entire DECADE since I ran off to La La Land with one of my Prince’s Trust mentees, ‘Lucky’ Luke Tucker, to make this quirky little half-hour doc for Sky TV‘s H&C channel! Damn, I miss spontaneous air travel! These days the only flying by the seat of my pants that can be done is in the (un)professional work sense. The doc saw me accompany Luke as he trained as an apprentice horse whisperer at the Californian home of legendary horse whisperer Monty Roberts. Good times!
One little hit of dopamine I experienced last year was winning a place in the 2020 Proverse Poetry Prize Anthology for my first bash at writing a poem! War of Voicesis my little rant on social media, populism and propaganda.The anthology, called Mingled Voices 5, will be published by ProverseandChinese University Pressas an ebook and in paperback THIS WEEK (April 22), but is already available for preorder onAmazon!
I’m also writing a humorous short story for theHong Kong Writer’s Circle‘s2021 anthology. This year’s theme isAfter The Storm. I seem to have been mentioned in the same sentence as ‘storm‘ quite a bit recently, which is either profoundly disturbing or deliciously serendipitous. If I don’t blow myself out, the anthology will be launched at theHK Lit Festand published in Nov!
Thanks to the festival for selectingTransference(originally for its 2020 film festival, which was cancelled because of COVID) and to theTuscon Weeklyfor mentioning our micro budget indie film in their article about the festival!
