As far back as I can remember I was always obsessed with film, spending hours studying movies and reading their screenplays when they became available to find online; however, it wasn’t until early 2018 that I decided to try my hand at writing my own. To add a fun angle to a research project I was doing on Scottish history -- William Wallace and Andrew De Moray the topic in question -- I chose to document it as a dual-protagonist feature screenplay to hone my technique and find my own style. The result was a 135-page monster, deliberately long so I could get as much practice in as possible.
To gauge my abilities, I entered some of the smaller fish in the competition game, and to my surprise it placed as a top-six finalist twice. It was a great learning curve and provided the stimulus to tackle my next ideas. To date I have three completed shorts (one now in development), two features and a one-hour Drama TV Pilot; I am currently writing my third feature. I will keep improving, acting on my ideas, and I won’t stop until I see my work on screen.
