The current production is a realistic adventure tale with a science fiction twist…
When the tranquillity of the Sussex countryside is shattered by a startling series of animal attacks, the blame is placed on an escaped Big Cat…
Ewan is a Director of several years' standing with numerous short films under his belt, now moving into the realm of feature films.
He is primarily interested in making films that connect with the audience on an emotional level. A graduate of the University of Portsmouth and the Brighton Film School, Ewan learnt his craft by shooting and editing relentlessly.
The current project is an action/adventure story with two eleven-year-old boys at its centre. The feature script, which he also wrote, is partially a reaction to mankind's current attempts to assert control over nature, and a response to the dangers that a cold-handed overconfidence can bring.
It also deals with issues central to the modern 'family unit' and to its various different shapes and sizes in which children grow up these days.
"I am a storyteller first and foremost, who tells dramatic stories in the most visual and interesting way that I can. It's about finding the human truth in a given situation."
The film is being shot in Brighton and the beautiful surrounding Sussex Downs, with a team of talented artists, in the Summer of 2012.
With another hat, Ewan teaches editing at The Brighton Film School and for the last four years has run film-making courses for youngsters at The Kids Film School.
