This is blog post is designed to allow me to covertly promote myself online, by gently taking you by the hand and guiding you through examples of the services I provide, disguised as a series of disarming anecdotes. There, that doesn’t feel so bad, does it? I’ll even throw in some exclusive content at the end in the form of a new short story unique to the site.
Over the course of the last year or so, I’ve been lucky enough that people have been willing to commission me to do what I love the most: tell stories.
Sometimes it’s a case of literally writing short stories, sometimes it’s through making films and sometimes it’s the task of communicating the story of a brand or business.
You don’t need me to tell you that humans have been attracted to stories from the dawn of our existence. The same impulse that drove our ancestors to draw scenarios on cave walls, is the same impulse that keeps us reading to the final page of a good book, or fills us with empathy for a product made by a brand with a rags to riches story.
I am obsessed with story in all formats and its power to entertain, inform and persuade.
For friends and casual readers, I hope to bring you regular creative content through this blog and my website. For creatives and professionals, please get in touch to discuss any kind of content you require. You can also check out all the great work I get to do as part of the team at Fine Rolling Media here.
Next week this blog will cover one of the most fulfilling, commercial short films I’ve had the pleasure of working on as a writer/director to date. But until then, as promised, I’ll leave you with a new short story – written exclusively for readers of this blog.
Not quite a ghost story, not quite a love story – Nora is a tale about the part of a person that stays with you when they pass away.
