About me
My passion for visual storytelling is the basis of everything I do. I have had experience as a producer on two short films and worked on set in Liverpool as 2nd AD on ‘Swallow Your Dreams': https://pro.imdb.com/name/nm11864459?ref_=cn_nv_usr_profile. I am a patient and courteous scheduler and problem-solver but I am also determined and persistent. For “Swallow Your Dreams”, I wrote to 40 actors’ agents before finding Paul McGann (“Dr Who”) and Amy Bailey (“Vikings”) and the composer Ben Woodgates. I graduated with a 2:1 from Goldsmiths College, University of London, in English and Creative Writing in July 2020. After graduating, I founded a weekly scriptwriting event which I show via Zoom to scriptwriters in the UK and the USA, on the London Screenwriters Festival Facebook pages. I write engaging promos for this event and attract a range of guest speakers who have included Jonathan Myerson (BBC Radio 4), Sean Keller (Hulu), and Abbie Andrews (“Tsar”). I believe that I have the outgoing personality and interpersonal strengths which convinces them to keep returning. I also arranged for Tijuana Ricks (‘Jessica Jones’) and Eddie Jackson (‘Game of Thrones’) to perform a series of extracts in a Facebook table-read. I knew that looking outside the UK would mean familiarising myself with new agencies. The results amply rewarded the additional effort. Abbie called me 'the most proactive person' she knows. I take that as a compliment - and I strive to do even better! And Dan Sloan, Director of The Last Film Company (Director of “Swallow Your Dreams”) has said this: ‘Theo was a brilliant addition to the production; always hardworking and willing to go the extra distance, with an upbeat attitude. Would definitely work with him again’
