In 2014 I released my first feature film DOWNHILL, a comedy about four old friends who reunite to go on an ill fated holiday together. It played everywhere from The Empire Leicester Sq to Ambleside in Cumbria and got a lovely response from press and public. This year it got it's TV outing on More4.

Here are a few of the lovely comments from the press.

The Times - Four stars
“It’s better than World’s End and more tightly structured than The Trip” “An overlooked gem”

The Mail - Four stars
“a warm hearted film, full of wit and insight”

The Independent - Four stars
“contains more big laughs in it’s first 20 minutes than Adam Sandler has generated in his past five movies”

Stephen Fry

‘A tremendous new British comedy’

I'm also developing a new feature film called "Monumental", in partnership with Baby Cow films and the BBC. 

Set around the slightly bizarre trend in the Balkans for erecting statues to unlikely Hollywood heroes, this is scheduled for production in 2017.
