I am excellent at dialogue. Good at visualisation. Have constant good story ideas. I am currently learning more about contemporary film script structure while collaborating on a script with an experienced writer. I wish to be involved more in the whole production process to fully understand the logistics of camera, directing, sound etc. Some of my short stories would be a good basis for a short film. I am also working on a couple of novels and a comedy TV idea that's been rattling around in my head for years.
