NZ screenwriting honour for short film and other news
I know I’ve dropped off the internet radar…
So what’s been going on? Well, I’ve pretty much done the rounds of the film festivals with my debut short film ‘Be Careful…’.
I was heartened that it was honoured as a finalist of the Screenwriters Awards of New Zealand (SWANZ) last year. And while it ultimately missed out (hats off to Dianne Taylor for her win!) I was pleased to be in such illustrious company. Considering the film was entirely self-funded, it was nice to see it honoured at this nation-wide ceremony.
On an entirely unrelated note: I see I’ve finally made Wikipedia as creator of the TV series, The Strip! The funny thing is when you clicked on my name, you got taken to my late grandfather’s Wikipedia page! I was named after him – he was a Presbyterian clergyman. But despite (or perhaps because of) his many talents and fierce intellect, he never created a dramedy about male strippers! Think I’ve now fixed it so you get taken to this website instead.
Anyway: Hopefully I’ll soon be updating this site with more news of the many projects I have in various stages of development, including graphic novel State’s Evidence, screenplay Sex, Vows and Jellybeans, and one or two theatrical projects I’m working on.
