APRIL 2014: This month I am delivering the first draft of a new script provisionally entitled HORKMOR or ONE EYE THE MOON... for Warp and the BFI. It's a kind of fututristic remix of old Brit horror classics like WITCHFINDER GENERAL and WICKER MAN.

My film EPIC is now called WELCOME TO KARASTAN and is also finally being completed this month after many absurd delays. WELCOME TO KARASTAN is a comedy, set in a fictitious Central Asian/Caucasian country called "Karastan" and dealing with (at least some of) the absurdities of making films, and fillm festivals. Starring Matthew Macfadyen, Myanna Buring, Noah Taylor, Richard van Weyden and Lasha Ramishvili. We are hoping for a festival premiere in the summer..

My project HASRET (Yearning) - a kind of supernatural expressionist documentary about Istanbul - now has funding from ARTE and NRW... we will hear this month if we get the rest of the funding needed for a shoot in May or June... watch this space.

Meanwhile my other film project, A MIRACLE, is looking positive for a 2014 shoot in the UK and Turkey. If it gets made it should be my most mainstream film to date.

All this film work has got in the way of my novel CATHEDRAL. But I have managed to complete a much improved draft of Book Two (out of three!).
