I am a screenwriter and development assistant.
I am currently writing a feature film adaptation of a children's fantasy novel and have a psychological horror feature in development. My recent feature script Scatter reached the Quarter Finals of both the Screenwriting Goldmine and BlueCat Screenplay Competitions 2015-2016.
I was development executive at Rocliffe Ltd where I assisted in the coordination of the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Competitions. I have worked as a script consultant at a leading international script consultancy, a development intern and personal assistant at a leading film production company and as a runner for a feature film, a Nike commercial and Leeds International Film Festival.
I have an MA in Filmmaking from the Northern Film School and a degree in English from the University of Leeds where I directed the theatrical adaptation of Festen.
In addition to my feature commissions I am also developing my next spec projects.
RT @Josh_Friedman: Bad exposition isn't bad because it gives away too much of the story. It's bad because it creates a crack in your emotional voice.
RT @Josh_Friedman: None of this means u need to tell a twisty oblique story. Quite the opposite. Just be pure and emotional in your voice. Be fucking Adele.
