Welcome to the labyrinth

Truth beyond fiction, to script, to film.

Enigma Series

'Never seek permission to be who you are'

I’ve realized through my evolution of writing fiction that I have a hunger to explore the translation of my works into a multitude of other mediums and more so be a part of that journey. The natural first step for me as a writer was to extend my knowledge to script writing. Through this experience I quickly became aware that with each newly acquired skill my mind was broadening to think, see and feel things from a different point of view. I’ve felt like a child exploring the world through new eyes every since.

The greatest progression I have undertaken in recent times was to shift my script writing into the medium of film with myself at the helm as the director, producer and writer. The video’s below are the teasers I have edited from the sizzle reel for the Enigma Series.

I hope you enjoy a sneak peek into my world of film making.
