Bio

Russell Edwards
------------------------
He's a screenwriter who generally finds himself procrastinating in front of a blank screen, staring blankly at a screen or trawling through the internet. Generally he's waiting for that epiphany or light bulb moment when he realizes that he has that one idea that will launch him into the echelons.
As someone growing up in the '80s and '90s, he found escape through the films of Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and many others.

He has always held an avid interest in movies. It wasn't until after a visit to the cinema in 2006 he was inspired to learn the craft of screenwriting and attempted his first screenplay. That script wasn't very good but it was a great learning curve and introduced him to the world of screenwriting. He has written a number of screenplays since.


He enjoys and appreciates the hard work that goes into creating a story and putting it down on paper. From the initial idea and logline right through to the final FADE OUT.


Russell is unable to divulge his age but he assures you he’s over 21.
