    It’s that time of year…

    ife has been incredibly busy as of late, but I have taken steps into animating Bertie already. If I can get this out by Easter then I will be very happy! Of course, you’ll be the first to see it.

  • What’s up?!

    What’s up?!

    Fade In What’s up?! It’s been quite some time since I’ve updated on here. Tech issues forced me into a summer hiatus which has ultimately made me think about what I want to do with The Mighty Dragon and exactly what to share on here. For now, the Dragon is resting, it’s on a break…not […]

  • 25,000 milestone – The Mighty Dragon

    25,000 milestone – The Mighty Dragon

    I’m not normally a number chaser at all – in fact, I hate numbers, always have preferred words! However, I can’t help feeling an overwhelming sense of pride hitting the 25,000 viewer milestone with The Mighty Dragon. My first post explaining my project was back in February – I’ve not wanted to bomb the blog too […]

  • Lucky 8’s?

    Lucky 8’s?

    A year ago on the 8th August 2017, I sent ‘a rougher than rough‘ draft of my first Bertie story to Billie, a very patient lady.  Littered with typos and not much character tension it didn’t have much going for it, but I wanted to show a glimpse of Bertie’s world, a raw Bertie. The […]

  • The Dance and The Railroad – David Henry Hwang #johnlone

    The Dance and The Railroad – David Henry Hwang #johnlone

    Before reading this play I wanted to research the building of the Transcontinental Railway in the USA – but stopped myself.  I wanted to absorb it first via the play itself and pick out the key themes that stood out for me. My history lessons would never have touched on this part of American history […]

  • Interview#10…Joe Fiorello, screenwriter, actor and director

    Interview#10…Joe Fiorello, screenwriter, actor and director

    Joe Fiorello is a Hong Kong based screenwriter, actor and director. But a closer look on IMDb shows that he is so much more (producer, cinematographer and editor) with many titles under his belt. I was very lucky to have the opportunity to pose Joe 10 Q’s about his experience in the film industry. 10 […]

  • Voicing distorted perceptions

    Voicing distorted perceptions

    Accents!  I love them..no that’s a lie, I am fascinated by accents, it’s something I touch upon in my upcoming film review too. My accent is odd and I am mocked regularly by my friends… its a combination of all the places I have lived.  Romford is my birth place (a town now swallowed into […]

  • When do you consider yourself a screenwriter?

    When do you consider yourself a screenwriter?

    That’s a good question and something that was raised in my interview with writer of the Scorpion King: Book of Souls, David Alton Hedges, he pondered on this question himself and something that’s been stuck at the back of mind since. My Instagram bio reads ‘screenwriter (aspiring)‘.  I think that’s fair.   It doesn’t mention […]

  • Feedback on Eps. 1 and a MASSIVE reality check

    Feedback on Eps. 1 and a MASSIVE reality check

    I decided to take the plunge and get a script consultant to check the first episode and provide, honest, constructive feedback.  I was a little apprehensive after my previous experience but this time did my research and found someone I felt comfortable receiving feedback from. It wasn’t pretty, as expected, but, I am not deterred – […]
