I have devoted the last eighteen years of my life to writing screenplays, learning about screenwriting, and, at the same time, teaching actors, filmmakers and writers my approach to drama.
My career has taken me to film festivals all over Europe, and into the offices of a lot of Film and TV producers. This is what I’ve learned from writing scripts and talking to producers:
Good drama flows from the vulnerability and struggles of the central characters. The more vulnerable you force them to become, the better the script.
These days I split my working life between teaching screenwriting, script editing/doctoring and my own projects.
I have an unconventional and unique points of view on both screenwriting and digital filmmaking. Some of my thoughts on these subject can be found in my column for Script Mag. What I am sure of is that there has never been a more exciting time to be a writer and filmmaker.
I am available for gun-for-hire writing projects, scripts that need fixing, or anything else work related.
