London-based writer looking to meet Writers/Producers/Directors

Philip Bowne

Hi everyone, thought I would introduce myself quickly here!

I'm Phil - a novelist and screenwriter based in London. My debut novel, Cows Can't Jump, was published in 2020 with Neem Tree Press and went on to win the Spotlight First Novel Prize. I'm currently working on developing a scripted adaptation.

I'm actively looking to expand my network and connect with producers and directors who are passionate about creating new, innovative content. I'm always on the lookout for exciting opportunities to collaborate and bring compelling stories to life.

So, if you're a fellow creative looking to connect and work together, please don't hesitate to send a message! I'd love to hear from you.

Looking forward to connecting with fellow filmmakers and TV professionals here.

Hi Philip,
Congratulations on Cows Can't Jump!
I'm an award-winning short drama film writer-director-producer, and my production company is Azkofilms.
I've previously freelanced with the BBC, ITV and advertising agencies on television commercials.
I also had a novella published, The Nature of Flames, Chipmunka Publishing, 164 pages, which is on Amazon.
It would be good to keep in touch.

Hey Philip,

I'm a young, French- American aspiring screenwriter and recent graduate from London Film School's Screenwriting MA, with a feature and a few short scripts, which I'd love for you to read. Conversely, I'd be curious to hear more about your novel.

In particular, I'm just setting out to produce and direct a short script of mind, titled Cursed, inspired from the time I got locked in my own toilet for the night lol. If interested, I would love for you to read it and hear your feedback on it!

And generally, I would to meet and have a chat if you are around London. Being a more experienced writer than myself, I'm sure you'd have a lot of knowledge to impart !
