Writing Projects
Ghosted two publications for minor public figures, which under the terms of the agreements I can’t tell you about (one’s a cricketer who used to do local radio).

Written a fantasy sitcom which is in development hell with the BBC for two years.

Currently working on two novels, and two screenplays.

Big screen, small screen
As a fencing coach and long-bow archer,  I got into the movie business for Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott on Robin Hood shooting arrows with the intent to miss, the same with Jack the Giant Killer this summer.

You will see me in Martin Scorceses’ Hugo this Christmas, you probably won’t see me in Warhorse for Spielberg but I am there. If you Freeze-frame Harry Potter in the Ministry of Magic in Deathly Hallows 1 and I’m in the middle of the shot. I occasionally turn up in Holby City, the odd (very odd) TV commercial and TV dramas (Sleepyhead, Injustice)

    Hey Robin,
    Just looked at your shot from Hugo. That’s fab! We have yet to see that movie, but really want to. My husband is really into visual effects.
