FILM

Hot off the success of Dan’s first published story The Legend of the Chained Oak, Dan wrote and co-produced an award-winning short film of the same name.
The film screened at festivals worldwide, winning three awards.
Distribution rights were sold to POV Horror, and the film is available to view on Roku, Amazon, Apple, and other online platforms.

2012 seems a lifetime ago. As an author, I had dreams of becoming the UK's answer to Stephen King, and with the huge success of my first short-story/film project, for a time it seemed possible.

 

Many of the people pictured here are friends of the family. Others, professionals who used the experience of making this film to go on to bigger and better things. I've lost contact with most of them, but I assure you, I owe them a great amount of thanks and respect.

 

Thank you, all of you.
