Edge Of Insanity 2019 (teaser trailer)

This is the teaser trailer for a new short film I’ve written the screenplay for, coming out next year. The trailer debuted at Moviebar in Brighton last night and has just gone live.

Edge of Insanity is the sequel to The Private Investigator, a 2016 short written and directed by Alexander Lines. Lead actor Wayne Liversidge returns as Trevor Murphy, a troubled PI who is recruited by a maverick police officer (Sarah Milton) to aid in a long running case he has a personal connection to…

The short is expected to arrive in Spring/Summer 2019.


A Brief Update on JamesWorld

Hello everyone!

I realise it’s been a while so a quick update on where things are in JamesWorld:

About a month ago I finished work on a short film called A Medium Chance, which I’ve also directed. This is going to be screened at the Caroline of Brunswick on August 26th, and again at a date to be decided.

Looking further ahead, stay tuned for The Other 1%, a podcast of audio dramas from the Tablet Book Company coming to iTunes, Spotify or Sticher. These audio dramas tell stories of paranormal incidences that just might be true. And I just might have written one of them to be recorded in September. The episode in question is called A Night in Balcombe Tunnel, and should be available for you to hear, and quake in terror, around new year.

Finally, I have just recently started work on a sequel to Alexander Lines’s 2016 short film The Private Investigator, which recently screened at Luna Beach Cinema on Brighton beach. The first draft (tentatively titled Edge of Insanity) has gone down very well, and I’m just in the rewriting process at the moment. I can’t give you much on the timescale of this one, as we kind of want to take our time to make it the best it can be, but again it’s safe to say stay tuned for the end of the year.

I imagine I shall be back in September to recap on the London Screenwriter’s Festival, which I shall be going to once again. Until next time, everyone!

Hello everyone!

So I’m just checking in to bring you quite a big update: My first ever stage play is coming to the Rialto Theatre in Brighton on March 27th and 28th!

Directed by Thomas Everchild as part of the Hove Grown festival, this play is based on a true story from Wayne Liversidge, who plays himself as a narrator.

Eden Avital Alexander plays Gerri, a love child caught between the dream of a bright future and the nightmare of a dark present.

Owen Bleach portrays John, a young man blinded by unquestioning love for Gerri and desperate to solve her mystery.

Faith Elizabeth also stars as Luanne, a professional dedicated to help others but unable to reach her own stepsister.

Featuring musical tracks from Christina Thom‘s EP ‘Trade’.

This production contains strong language and adult themes.

Tickets are on sale NOW, at £12 standard admission and £9 concession.


When the play received a performance reading by Sussex Playwrights in January this year reviewer Dr Simon Jenner said…

‘ … breathtakingly vivid and compellingly believable …. a staged version of this play … will prove one of the absolute highlights of 2018’s Hove Grown … ‘28424382_167536774051913_9221605933146058009_o
