The Writer: Craig Griffiths

I am a writer of features that are very tone and character focused.  I write characters and let them inform plot.  I have a few short films out on the web.  Search Youtube for me and you should find "Blood Brother" and "The change in me".

I have a books on Amazon including "Writing Screenplays with Intelligence" and "Logline".  Writing Screenplays with Intelligence is a set of tools I used in my career as an intelligence analyst and how they can be used to develop characters and write screenplays.  Logline is a great set of tools and things to consider when writing a logline or a script. 

I am not a big follower of rules and believe a story breaks where it... Go to bio
