Simon Frederick (the other one)

I work in feature film/TV production/development, and a writer of film, TV and content. Aiming for the writer/director/producer triptych, but mostly focussed on screenwriting.

I moved to London in 2015 after realising my master's in Biomechanics was more likely to be a fabulously bland piece of art on the wall, rather than get me a job. I didn't realise that all it takes to get started in the film industry is adoration for film, addiction to the pursuit and a drive to progress without having any money for 5 years. Thankfully, I had all those traits and a friend coaxed me down to London to pursue the dream.

I've since worked in post-, production and development for film, TV, commercials, music videos and corporate. But the more I learned about the craft of screenwriting, the more I had to try it out. The more I tried it, the more I had to make it my life. I'm now fully in that pursuit, hoping to work with other great artists in any way I can.
