Filming The Marshlands

I have recently been working on the pilot for new TV series The Marshlands.

Simon West in Life of Action 2

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of 90’s action classic Con Air, I took the opportunity to proudly announce British director Simon West in my next book, Life of Action 2.

Filming Wrapped on The Verge

I have just wrapped on The Verge, a female-driven action short with a tight and simple premise.

The Verge is a frantic action, sci-fi short film following three women fighting for survival on the edge of an ongoing apocalypse. In the basement of a derelict building, three young women wait to face the final …
