Simon Bovey

My work as writer and director covers a diverse range of fields from animation and theatre, to radio drama and award winning shorts and feature films. I’m an established writer for the BBC and I also work as a script doctor and analyst for a number of independent film companies both in Europe and in America. I teach screenwriting and directing at Worcester University.
