Shooters Q&A

Films I wish I had made

Jaws, any of the James Bonds (especially Live and Let Die)

I cried watching

Titanic (though I lied to the wife about it!), Benji the Hunted (I was eight at the time).

I left the cinema during

Swingers - only film I've ever walked out on. Terrible. Though I did fall asleep during the middle hour of Meet Joe Black - I asked the wife what I'd missed and she said 'Absolutely nothing!' Dreadful film.

Directors I love

Spielberg, Hitchcock, James Cameron, De Palma, Tarantino

Actors I admire

Naomi Watts, Sirs Michael Caine, Sean Connery and Roger Moore, Nicole Kidman, Pierce Brosnan

Writers I respect

Blake Snyder, Bond writers - Maibaum, Wood, etc

My desert island discs

'No More Lonely Nights' by Sir Paul McCartney, 'Imagine' by Lennon

Books I have given my friends

I always recommend Tom Sharpe's 'Wilt' to everyone

My death row meal

Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, or sirloin steak

The best thing I own

My flat in London - it contains my cherished BluRay player and Blu/DVD collection

More about me

I work in the no/low to medium budget British film industry. I assess other people’s scripts – through my own small production company Lonely Nights Productions Ltd – and also for a well-known UK-wide film festival. I also write my own scripts, in order to bring all those stories buzzing around my head to life. I have to date written around a dozen short and feature-length scripts, and have several projects in various stages of development. I am also an actor for hire, and have taken lead and supporting roles (mainly leads) in more than 20 short and feature films. I am also a crime author (2 books published), and a major movie buff. I live and work in London and am always looking for people to get involved with, professionally and socially. Just give me a call or drop me an e-mail today!
