A Meat Bag with a Pen

And by the way, you know, when you're telling these little stories? Here's a good idea – have a POINT.

CV

About me:

I am a dedicated and imaginative Screenwriter located at the centre of the universe (Chesterfield, Derbyshire). I am more than happy to try my hand at different writing mediums and to that end, I have also written three sci-fi/fantasy novels. When I’m not writing my own ideas, I tend to be reading other people’s, currently establishing myself as an up-and-coming independent Script Reader.

Screenwriter:

Working mainly in science fiction, I have written several feature-length screenplays, including “Life Signs” which is currently under option for the 2nd time with Unstoppable Entertainment (Noel Clarke, writer/director of Adulthood, 4.3.2.1 & Brotherhood).

Taking on dual roles, I both wrote and produced the short film Sweet N’ Sour Recessionstarring Georgina Sherrington (The Worst Witch) and Mark Kempner (The World’s End, Kill List).

Credits: (IMDB)

“Sweet n Sour Recession” (2010) – Writer & Producer.

“Vacation Hunter” (2013) – Co-writer.

“Rodentia” (2015) – Writer.

“Arose” (2017) – Writer.

“Life Signs” (2014 – present) – Writer. Optioned screenplay (2010 to 2014 & 2017 – present).

Feedback for my screenplays:

Absolutely gripping, well written and such an original idea.” – Unstoppable Entertainment

We plan very big things for this script and for Paul in the future and are very happy to have him on board– Unstoppable Entertainment

Life Signs is so strong, with a lot of depth.– Independent Talent

“The premise is intriguing and has a lot of potential.” – The Black List

“Excellent, chilling, highly visual and inventive.” – NYC Midnight Short Script Competition

“It’s great to find someone writing stuff like this. Kinda reminds me of an old Tales from The Crypt/Twilight Zone vibe” – Jack Pirie (Director)

Script Reader:

I am an experienced, independent Script Reader offering screenplay coverage for short and feature-length screenplays and have attended both “Effective Script Reading” hosted by Evan Leighton-Davis (Industrial Scripts) and “Breaking into Script Reading” hosted by script guru Lucy V. Hay (Bang2Write). I received the following course feedback:

Synopsis is refreshingly concise, but contains all key story beats” and “Certainly of industry-standard” – Evan Leighton-Davis

“All in all, your report is excellent” and “You summarise well at the end and I LOVE your idea…” Lucy V. Hay

Representation:

I have been represented by both Independent Talent and 42 M&P. I am currently looking for new representation.
