WHO AM I?

Just picture Jackie Chan standing on a precipice, arms spread wide, bellowing the question to the depths of his lungs. Except that I actually know who I am.*

Anyway, thanks for the visit.

What should you know about me? Probably not much.  he internet is scary and dangerous. But I will say I’m a screenwriter, blogger, critic and quasi-author who rather enjoys films.

me-againThankfully I discovered the passion at a young age and decided to turn a gangster story I had concocted (which otherwise would have been a novel) into a screenplay. With positively no idea how to write them back then, the first drafts were genuinely awful, but through (sometimes painful) trial and error, which has now spanned four feature scripts and several short films, I’ve reached a point where I’ve earned at least some recognition for my work. In 2013, the Fresh Voices Screenplay Competition nominated my western for ‘Best International Script’, which was also cited as “an engrossing and entertaining read” with “one helluva voice”.  So that was pretty nice.

But, of course, I like talking and writing about films as much as I like writing them, which is what led me to start this site. I hope to keep expanding here, but I also contribute to various online publications, including Flickering Myth. If you like, you can help me in my quest to gain a soupçon of online prestige by following me on twitter and spreading the word.

So, ramblers, enjoy my ramblings.

*if you know the film, we should have a coffee and talk about how utterly perfect every frame is

    Carpe diem. Seize the day, Eddy. Make your life extraordinary. (As John Keating would say).

  • Hey there! I wanted to invite you over to a blogging event I’m holding on a monthly basis, it would be absolutely lovely having you partake as well. It consists of you documenting your life every month through your memories.

  • Enjoyed your ramblings. I’m thrilled for you. It appears that you are following your dream from way back when. It seems that you are in your element. How blessed is that?!

    Oh…I love movies too. When I was much younger, and was supposed to be in bed, I would sneak downstairs and watch black and white movies. There were more of them then.

    Today, I’ll grab some concession popcorn and watch a movie by myself. I especially love the Hunger Games. One afternoon, was in the theater alone. Oh, did it get loud in there!!!

  • I am not a movie watcher but this is an awesome blog. Your posts are well organized and your writing is clear and to the point. Well done.

    Hey Eddy,

    Our site was nominated for a Liebster Award and as part of that we have to pass on the favour. So we’ve come up with a little Q&A over here – http://wp.me/p7juHU-RJ

    We’ve nominated you because we really enjoy your reviews and I’m sure our visitors will too!
    Sorry if you’re already done this or you’re not interested in this sort of thing. It is a bit spammy I realise, but we genuinely think our readers will be interested in your stuff.

    Cheers,

    Rob (Reel Film)

  • Loving your attitude bud! I’ve been thinking of video production of sorts (With story elements) so perhaps we could collaborate in future? 😉

    Anywho, will be sticking around for a bit so expect to see me around here!

    Your pal,
    Benjamin

    Like the look of the new site Eddy. Keep up the great work.

  • As the winter months dump more and more snow on us, I’m turning more and more towards the screen for a reprieve. And now I’ll be looking here for well researched reviews and teasers to draw me in.

    Means a lot – I’ll do my best to keep things interesting!
