James McCreadie has been writing for 20 years now, though sometimes it feels like a lot more! His past works have included multiple episodes of the soaps River City, Fair City and Doctors. He has also been on the writing team for the CBBC shows Roy and Little Roy. Today, James prefers to concentrate on his own projects and co-writes exclusively with his wife, Debbie May. Their love for film has provided a multitude of scripts in different genres from big action flicks, one of which got them signed by CAA in LA, to small independent scripts, which tend to end up as comedies. Together they’ve penned a number of films / short films, which have went to production, including the award winning ‘Fast Romance’, ‘Crime’ and the upcoming ‘Train Set’, all of which James had roles in. Never one to put all his eggs in one basket, James is also a fight arranger, voiceover artist, and, thanks to his own projects, moving back into acting. He believes anyone can write and is always happy to help those looking to break into the game!
Jim will talk about his experiences.
