Personal and purpose-led writing.
My High School English teacher once told me that I "write in a weird way". It's still the best compliment I've ever received.
My writing varies between a number of different forms: screenplays, stage plays, short-form pieces (essays/stories/articles). Different stories require different forms and structures; step one is always figuring out which best suits the story intentions.
I am always working on my next written project on spec, and am available for commissioned pieces and collaborative work.
Short-Form Sample: Non-Fiction
Originally written as a 'cathartic think piece' in one of my many tight-locked notepads, The Coffee Cup Metaphor is a personal exploration of the mechanisms of grief. Contains themes of death, loss and grief.
Short Narrative Screenplay
Written as an exercise in (mostly) non-verbal exposition, Welcome To Vernaville is a short narrative script about a conventional romance in a world where no one talks.
Short Narrative Screenplay: Children's
Who's Mindy? is a children's short film about a girl with shape-shifting abilities trying to decide who to be. The moral of the story, of course... she should be herself.
Short Narrative Story: Fiction
Arch Parkway tells the story of a village with the accolade of being the 'Safest Place In The Nation'. And it is. At least, for the people within it.
This is a collection of writing that I have collated from a number of my notepads. They are pieces of writing, mostly poetry, which I have written at some point over the past few years, usually when out and about. There is no link between each, and none have any explanation - I just thought I would share some of the more personal writing that I would usually never share.
Get In Touch:
I am always on the lookout for my next film, photo or writing project, and am eager to discuss any ideas and to work with you in meeting your project goals and telling your story - no matter what that may be. With full assurance I can offer an expertise and dedication to every project, and guarantee the best possible final product.
