I’ve had a passion for film for a long time now, with the intention of pursuing a career in writing and directing.
Over the past few years I’ve been directing short films with friends, as well as some animation. I’ve recently started writing scripts for stage as well as film as part of a script-writing class, where our work has been performed in the past as part of the Connections Festivals.
As well as film creation I also have a strong interest in film analysis and reviewing. I’ve been writing film reviews for around a year, and as part of BBC Generation 2014 have contributed on Radio Scotland’s Culture Studio to review films featured in the Edinburgh Film Festival.
