My Favorite Quote
Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed. - The Breakfast Club
I've never been a particularly academic type of person. Throughout primary school the only progress that seemed to be made was in the form of my English lessons, re-reading my old exercise books will find a LOT of red pen, mostly praising the creativity, yet suggesting my work should be neater...
A note that no doubt would still apply to the notepads I write in now.
Throughout Secondary English became my passion, the only lesson I truly enjoyed, until the introduction of Media… The drive and the desire to chase the crazy dream of being a Screenwriter was gathering momentum, despite teachers around me telling me I was being ridiculous.
My Degree in Video Production gave me my first real crack at writing a script, followed by a mountain of notes, throughout the course a couple of (bad) short films were produced… Hooking me, the rush of seeing something move from brain to page, and page to screen, was like nothing I’d ever felt.
In 2013 I was fortunate enough to be awarded a BAFTA Scholarship, which in turn allowed me to attend The London Film School, where I subsequently earned an MA in Screenwriting. The course helped me by not only teaching me skills and techniques that I previously lacked, but it also, along with the Scholarship, left me absolutely determined to either achieve my dream, or give absolutely everything in chasing it down.
Now, a year on from graduation I’ve worked hard to start to build a slate of scripts alongside Endor Productions, it’s all starting to come together nicely. My next step is to send my work out in the hopes that an agent shows interest.
