2017 kick-off

Again apologies for sparcity of posts!

Wrapped up 2016 with an outing on Line Of Duty 4… and, thanks to Adam, my agent at RKA, about to leave for Birmingham for work on… a mystery project!

Writing-wise, development continues apace on Born Again (a feature selected for participation in NI Screen’ New Writer Focus), and She & I (housed with Brendan Byrne at Fine Point Films). The Platform – out of sight but still very much on my mind – will see action again before the year’s out.

Almost there!

Much, much too much water allowed to pass under the bridge since the last of these. Hey, I just forget!

The year has ended on as much of a flourish as it began… thankfully. A little quiet in the middle as you may have guessed.

Draft 2 of the feature film script THE PLATFORM has just been handed over, and I’m very happy with where it’s at at this point. Next stop, the (right) producer!

On a similar front, I’m script editing –  or will shortly be script editing – the Polish/Irish feature co-pro ‘Nocturne’, alongside Polish producer/director, Edward Porembny, and my ol’ mate Conor MacDermottroe. V much looking forward to that.

Recent acting? Well, back in the summer I’d the pleasure of working again with Hardy Pictures on the hugely-antcipated ’37 Days’, screening on the BBC in the new year as a significant part of the Beeb’s WW1 centenary commemorations. I play… King George V!

Enjoyed inhabiting the villainous persona of the Bailiff in Six Mile Productions’ Ulster Scots horror ‘Stumpy’s Brae’ which aired at Halloween… there was the (quite spectacularly different) part of Fr. Patrick in Partizan’s short film ‘Immaculate Misconception’… a fun outing alongside a host of fine actors in HITWG’s new radio commission ‘No. 2s’ , which cocks a timely satirical snook at the hypocritical shenanigans at Stormont… and even a ep of the Colin Bateman-penned, Stirling production for BBC NI, Scup.

Those are the headlines for the latter part of a piquant 2013… Do have a crackin’ Christmas and I’ll see (some of) y’all in ’14.

Agent, etc… June 5th

Sorry if the length and frequency of these entries have become like missives from a lone oarsman cast adrift without water in the South Pacific…

VERY busy few months. Final phase of MA included, in mid-May, a very entertaining reading from a selection of writers at the Crescent AC, and launch of QUB Open Ear mag on board The Galley.

Congrats to all at Canderblinks! Good Vibrations opened the Belfast Film Festival on May 31st with screenings at the Ulster Hall and Movie House.

Have just narrated 8 eps of Farm Fixer for BBC NI. Presented by Nick Hewer, it’s to air in the autumn, I believe.

Last, but by no means least, delighted to have recently signed with Joe Phillips at Curtis Brown (

Betrayal of Trust

Just finished shooting Betrayal Of Trust – another controversial offering from the Hole In The Wall writers, directed by Michael McDowell and looking at the investigation which revealed the true impact of the crimes of Brendan Smyth and the corruption which shielded him. It’s a 2-parter, to screen, initially on BBC NI, some time in January.
