About me

 

Dwanes films have an observational look into the lives of intersting characters that have personal conflicts with family memebers. Taking moments with individual characters and introducing them to conflicts amoung an ensamble, his approach is both cinematic and natural. Originally from the Midlands his eye for the natural and interst for broken characters, came about through his love for acting which manefested into creative writing and visual literacy. The content Dwane explores is based around ensambles of family, personal relationships, fatherly figures, and strong female characters. His natural writing style, use of cinematic device and visual precesnse has developed over time as a style. His passion for stories, narrative, characters and visual imagery is visable in his work. Dwane started making short experimental films and mock documentaries with friends and actors. At this point, he became immersed in the formalities of screenwriting, educating himself with film technique, device, story, narrative, cinematography, characters and much more. After studying performing arts at Hereford College of Arts he quickly learned the techniques of theatre and screen acting - gaining this experience has led to his own development as a filmmaker. Securing a Masters Degree in Film & Media Production at Sheffield Hallam University, there were many opportunities to make bigger and more developed films. A number of university films were shortlisted at the Student RTS Awards, BFI and Festival de Cannes. Having written bigger scripts with bigger projects in mind since university, his passion, skills and abilities have led to work with the CBC, a Production Company based in the Midlands. His work with them has spanned from The Kidderminster Arts Festival Documentary, to a three part Web Series titleIdle Chat. His next big project Tapestry (2016), is the first step towards making is first feature film.
