Features:

 

UP YOURS! In development  Producer Alex Thiele/Astrid Edwards 65Wilding Films/Rockmother Films  Drama/Biopic/Music Feature

 

Bi-racial, working class teenager Marian Elliott creates a bombastic punk alter ego Poly Styrene to front her band Xray Spex - with a voice powerful enough to cut through sheet metal she sings about identity and consumerism. The media quickly latch on but the pressures of becoming a music industry product force a profound realisation - all she really wants to be is herself.

Woven through with the politics of 1974-79, the film will be structured around the tracks from Germfree Adolescents - Xray Spex's only album.

 

PONY GIRL Feature Screenplay Black Comedy

A distracted wife must take drastic action or lose her philandering husband to his new lover - a small white New Forest pony.

 

GREEN GRASS Feature screenplay Drama/Black Comedy - Selected for CineMart Rotterdam Film Festival, Development Award Torino Film Lab- 2nd place Euroscript  Screen Story Competition

Maggie McDuff is twelve and with each member of her family living in their own self-centred bubble, she might as well be bloody invisible; until she kills the bastard family cat and sets in motion a series of events that will make her visible to everyone within earshot of a police siren.
