A Selection of Short Horror Fiction… Now as PDF’s!

I’ve added my short horror stories ‘Gulls’, ‘The Jade Junk’ and ‘The Bay of Goats’ to the blog for your reading pleasure. They’re now available as PDF files so you can view and download them for reading on iPads, Kindles and whatever new technology you have kicking around the place.

Simply click on the ‘Fiction’ link at the top of the page or go here.

In the following weeks I’ll be adding much more content to the site including the scripts for Bloody Cuts episodes I’ve written and co-written as well as a selection of comic book scripts, prose pieces and other slices of writing from the archives.

Please check them out, all comments and views are gratefully received!

Death Scenes – The Script

Death Scenes PosterDeath Scenes‘ is the 7th film in the Bloody Cuts series of short horror films and my directorial debut. For those  interested in a little peek behind the scenes or in screenwriting here’s a link to the PDF of the Shooting Draft of the script.

This is the 4th draft of the script and isn’t really very different to the 1st draft which I wrote in around a couple of hours. The following drafts changed some dialogue to suit the actors and altered/added to the action such as the flickering lights and train noise seen in the finished film.

There is a difference in structure towards the climax, with the revelation of John’s kills being inter-cut in the script but coming in a burst in the film itself. This is one of those examples of the script being changed to suit the pace of the editing and the actual footage.
