He also writes/directs and his live-action children’s feature film called Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? which he co-wrote and co-directed, premiered at the London Film Festival November 2015. He script edited the feature film The Man Inside (starring Peter Mullan) and Kings (starring Colm Meaney), and for many years he was a story analyst for film companies such as Working Title, Pathe, Miramax, UK Film Council, amongst others. He writes the popular blog, Scriptwriting In The UK, which inspired him to set up the Red Planet Prize, a scheme to discover new writers, with writer/producer Tony Jordan.

He has developed an exciting new kids’ animation show for Endemol, and is generally expanding his profile in the children/family genre as a writer/director/consultant.
