The script still being worked on, loosely a short film about a man who comes calling on a young woman and tries to kill her, she has no choice but to survive in a town who sees or hears nothing. By the end, she has to fight against a man who is hell-bent on killing her.

Actors chosen will be given the script once it's finished and updates will be given as to when rehearsals and filming begins.

This was the second film I have been writing, the last one being a horror which didn't come to light but that script is being worked on and will film in 2020.

This film centers around a transgender woman and the basis of the story is that it is a hate crime against her. More info will be given as the script and dates are finalised.

Change to the script, happy with the applicants who have applied so far and have shortlisted all 4 of them for the role of maniac, to that I add that there will now be more than one bad guy as I see this as a story of a woman who must face not only the villains but herself, to bring her strength to the surface to survive, she will be like the Sarah Connor character, transforming from victim to hero as she is pushed to the edge. The script is being developed still and all applicants who are shortlisted will be contacted in coming weeks with the details. The film will include night shoots with only a couple of morning shoots. The film will be very gritty and bloody, brutal and shocking. Stunts will be involved. More info coming soon.

Name for the film has been decided and will be called The Hunt. The script is currently stuck in development Hell but working hard to resolve this. The film however has been expanded in terms of story and will feature a gang of killers rather than just the one. Three of the maniacs will be brothers while the rest are their friends, led by the Ex of the main character who deals with schizophrenia and follows through on his plan to kill his ex. More information coming soon and I will be messaging those who I've chosen to play the maniacs, the brothers, the ex and new characters. Locations have been chosen also.

Update: Thanks to everyone who has applied for this film, can't wait to get started, script is still in editing mode and it's gone through some major changes, a couple new characters will be up for grabs and I am still deciding on who else to cast for the film, I will keep everyone up to date on what is going on and again massive thanks to everyone who has applied. Just to note if you don't get picked for this film I am re writing another script for a short horror film called Dreamscape possession, this is a film that was pulled back a few years ago but will be going back to that so keep an eye out.
