Bremner had worked widely in theatre, television, and film for years before being cast in his breakout role in Trainspotting, by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle. Having originated the role of Mark Renton in Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre production, Bremner then made waves opposite Ewan McGregor playing Spud Murphy and earned screen immortality with his character's infamous "speed fueled" job interview scene.

Prior to Trainspotting, Bremner gave a striking performance in Mike Leigh's Naked, starring opposite David Thewlis. In 1999, Bremner received critical acclaim for his portrayal of a schizophrenic man living with his dysfunctional family in Harmony Korine's Julien Donkey-Boy. Filmed strictly in accordance with the ultra-realist tenants of Lars Von Trier's Dogma 95 movement and starring opposite Werner Herzog, Bremner played Julien its eponymous hero, requiring him to assume an American accent. He then worked with director Michael Bay in his high-profile 2001 war film Pearl Harbor, proving his versatility once again by portraying the role of a wholeheartedly patriotic American soldier fighting in WWII. The following year, he stepped back into fatigues for a supporting role in Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down, while rounding out the next several years with roles in high-profile Hollywood releases such as The Rundown, Disney's Around the World in 80 Days, AVP: Alien vs. Predator Woody Allen's Match Point, the comedy Death at a Funeral directed by Frank Oz, and Fool's Gold starring Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson.

This past year proved to be a busy one when Bremner was invited to join the DC Universe in the Zack Snyder-produced feature Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, co-starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, and set for release by Warner Bros. in the summer of 2017. Ewen would also reprise his unforgettable role as "Spud" in the highly-anticipated sequel to Danny Boyle's cult classic, T2: Trainspotting, for Sony due out early 2017. He rounded out the year with the feature The Lake, produced by Luc Besson.

Currently (2017), Bremner is filming the TNT Drama Series Will with Shekhar Kapur, produced by Craig Pearce, whose writing credits include the feature films The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet and Strictly Ballroom.

David moved to London at age 17 to study at the Central School of Speech and Drama but left after two terms because of a shortage of funds. He went back to Scotland and landed a role in Bill Forsyth's "Comfort and Joy," then returned to Central to finish his last term. He was understudy to Ralph Fiennes in "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

He performed in "Romeo and Juliet" as Tybalt, directed by Declan Donnallan for the New Shakespeare Company, at the Open Air Theatre in London's Regent Park, which was followed by a European tour.

Stephen Walters

Stephen Walters, an Royal Television Society (RTS) Best Actor nominee, was born on 22 May 1975 in Merseyside, England (UK), where he spent the remainder of his childhood. A regular both on British television and film, for many years he has played a wide range and variety of character roles in both drama and comedy. The roles with which he is most commonly associated are unpredictable, complex figures. These characters illustrate a wide range of dialect accents and backgrounds including American, RP, Scottish, Irish ,Eastern European, Cockney, Mancunian and others. Stephen has also worked alongside directors as eclectic as Matthew Vaughan, Danny Boyle, Ronny Yu, Guy Ritchie, Peter Webber, Sam Miller, Rowan Joffe, and the late Antonia Bird.

After completion of a BTEC in Performing arts at Southport Collage (1990-1992), he went on to gain a place at the prestigious Bristol Old Vic Theatre School (1994-1996). In 1994 Stephen played the lead role of Joey Jackson, a poetic soul searching for the meaning of life, in Jim Morris' "Blood on the Dole" as part of the "Alan Bleasdale Presents" series for Channel 4. This performance garnered much critical acclaim for Walters and with the personal advice of Bleasdale he decided to apply to train at drama school. Stephen has spoken about this period in his career by saying, "I owe everything to Alan Bleasdale in that, after seeing Blood on the Dole, he made me realize and see for the first time that I was an actor...Bleasdale opened the door for me...literally and metaphorically speaking".

In 1989, whilst still at Saint Wilfrids secondary school, Stephen got his first break in television through a now defunct agency run by fellow Liverpudlian actor Ricky Tomlinson, with whom he has appeared in no less than five different projects. Cast as part of ITVs "Dramarama" series on an episode entitled "Ghost Story", Stephen played the featured role of Corporal Tomkins. This was directed by future award winning Director Julian Jarrold, whom Stephen went on to work with again on an ITV drama entitled "Touching Evil". Stephen portrayed lead guest character Jack McCaffrey, a slippery cockney, in a two-part drama written by Paul Abbott.

Coincidentally, by a strange quirk of fate in the spring of 2013, Stephen played the lead role of Ricky Tomlinson in "Ragged", which was a one-off drama for the "Sky Arts Presents" series directed by comedian Johnny Vegas. The role dealt with Tomlinson's incarceration during the 1970's builders strike. For his performance, Stephen was nominated, alongside Derek Jacobi, for an RTS Award as Best Actor in a single drama.

After leaving drama school Stephen appeared as Ian Glover in Jimmy McGovern's highly acclaimed drama "Hillsborough", which went on to win a Bafta for best drama. His next performance was in the role of Jamie Spencer on ITV's ill fated drama series "Springhill" (1996), though Stephen did not return for the second series due to artistic differences.

Between 1998 and 2000, Stephen appeared in numerous eye catching episodic performances such as BBC's "Pie In the Sky", opposite the late Richard Griffiths, Mikey Sullivan in Jimmy McGovern's "Liverpool 1", Private John McGrath in "Band of Brothers" (HBO), and Scot in "Nice Guy Eddie". Stephen also played Kick Box Stevie in the feature film "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" by Stuart Suggs.

In 2001, with three back-to-back roles, Stephen's work and range were presented to a larger much larger audience. Stephen starred in the BBC's production of writer Jim Cartwright's (Road, Little Voices) "Strumpet" opposite Christopher Eccleston. "Strumpet" was directed by Oscar winning director Danny Boyle. The role of Knockoff was, in Stephen's words, "An actor's dream". This performance was in complete contrast to Walters' more dramatic work up to this point and showed his love for comedy. Walters has gone on record as saying..."It took someone like Danny to take a chance on me...previously I had done more intense, perhaps disturbed kind of characters...then along came this script that I read for and Danny thought I could play it...working with Danny Boyle, Christopher Eccleston and Jim Cartwright was a real learning curve for me".

That same year Stephen featured in the film "Mean Machine" (2001), a remake of the 1974 Burt Reynolds film produced by Matthew Vaughn, as bomb expert Nitro opposite actor Vinny Jones. He then played the role of Nazi skinhead Blowfish in Ronny Yu's film "51st State" (AKA-"Formula 51") opposite Samuel L Jackson and Robert Carlyle. Both characters showcase the more unpredictable, dangerous type of characters that Walters seems to relish. Interestingly, Stephen also worked with Carlyle in his first ever feature film "Plunkett and McCleane", directed by Jake Scot, son of acclaimed director Ridley Scot, where he played the role of Denis. Robert Carlyle has been an important influence on Stephen's career.

These consecutive roles were the springboard to Stephen being cast in the lead role of prison Psychiatrist Nick Vaughn, alongside Lenny James, in Channel 4's eight-part drama series "Buried" (2002). The series, by award winning producer Tony Garner, was awarded the Bafta for Best Drama and Stephen was the recipient of critical acclaim for his performance.

In 2003, Stephen played a two episode lead guest as Dylan Forbes in the ITV drama "Murder City", directed by Sam Miller. The following year (2004) Stephen was directed by Matthew Vaughn in the explosive supporting role of Shanks, opposite Daniel Craig, in the feature film "Layer Cake". Vaughn, who had produced Barry Scholnick's Mean Machine, offered Stephen the role.

Continuing with his eclectic list of credits, Stephen's next project was Guy Richie's film "Revolver" (2005) where, opposite Jason Statham, he portrayed Irish Joe. That same year saw a cameo appearance, as the Arkham Lunatic, in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed feature "Batman Begins" and a turn later as master Lord Gilbert Gifford in the BBC's "Virgin Queen".

In 2007, after a self imposed year hiatus, Stephen undertook three new projects. First was the feature film "Hannibal Rising", the final installment of the Hannibal series which explored the origins of Hannibal Lecter, where he was featured alongside fellow actor Rhys Ifans. Stephen portrayed Zigmas Milko, a man of Eastern European origin and one of Hannibal's main victims. Director Peter Webber described the death of Zigmas Milko as one of his favorite scenes in the movie. Immediately following his role in Hannibal, Stephen was featured in BBC 3's six part comedy series entitled "The Visit", which was set in a prison waiting room. Stephen played the colorful character Splodge, a Manchunian rogue and a troublesome yet likable loser. Later that same year, Stephen played the frighteningly strange, oddly comedic Maddison Twatter (AKA-Mad Twatter) in a three episodes stint for E4's cult smash "Skins".

In 2008 Stephen appeared in "Franklyn", a film directed by Gerald McMorrow, which premiered at the London Film Festival. His dual role as Bill Wasnik/Wormsnakes was played opposite Bernard Hill and Ryan Philippe respectively. In another two-part drama entitled "Wire In The Blood", Stephen played serial killer on the loose James Williams. Robson Green, also featured in the series, collaborated with Stephen in ITV's 1997 drama "Touching Evil". These episodes were directed by Philip John who, coincidentally, would later direct Walters in Outlander (2014-2016).

"Splintered", a horror movie released cinematically in 2010, was demanding for Stephen since he played dual roles as brothers Vincent and Gavin. Playing opposite himself in the same scene presented unique challenges, yet garnered recognition and acclaim for Walters.

"Powder" (2011), based on Kevin Sampson's novel of the same name, featured Stephen in the lead role of Johnny Winegums, the manager of an aspiring POP music group. Some scenes in the film involved filming in front of a live audience, composed of over fifty thousand fans, at the V Festival. This was an experience Stephen thoroughly enjoyed. Later that year Stephen featured heavily in "Age of Heroes" along with Sean Bean. The WWII drama, directed by Adrian Vitoria, highlighted the story of Ian Fleming's Commandos who were assigned to infiltrate behind enemy lines in the Nazi controlled snowy mountains of Norway. Walters has commented that the role of Private Syd Brightling was both a physical and mental test of endurance. Walters would work with Sean Bean again in 2013's "The Accused", penned by Jimmy McGovern.

In 2012 Stephen played the role of gangster Callum Rose, opposite his name-sake and friend actor Stephen Graham, in the BBC's production "Good Cop". Written by Stephen Butchard, and despite only running for one series, "Good Cop" won the RTS award for Best Drama. Sam Miller acted as director. That same year Stephen played the role of Gaz in Niall Griffith's "Kelly + Victor", a film which received a Bafta for Best Debut Feature and critical acclaim for its director Kieran Evans.

2013 brought Stephen lead roles in two back to back television series, highlighting his range and versatility. First was the comedy "Great Night Out", from Jimmy Mulville's HatTrick Productions, where Walters played the lovable but simple Daz Taylor. Second was "The Village" where he played Crispin Ingram, a sadistic teacher from Derbyshire. Director Antonia Bird cast Stephen in the latter and he was devastated to hear of her sudden death not long after filming. Gillies McKinnon, another director Stephen worked with on "The Village", also directed Jimmy McGovermn's "Needle" (1990), Stephen's second professional project that told the story of the heroin epidemic in Liverpool. A second series of "The Village" was re-commissioned, though Stephen was unable to reprise his role due to a scheduling conflict with "Outlander" (2014-2016).

Stephen worked extensively with director Brian Kelly in 2014. He filmed three episodes of NBC's "Dracula", opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers, as Hungarian detective Hackett. The series was shot in Budapest, Hungary. Kelly then cast Walters as Simon the Sorcerer in NBC's series "AD the Bible" (2015). The series was shot in Morocco.

From 2014-2016, opposite Caitriona Balfe and Graham McTavish, Walters portrayed the featured role of Angus Mhor in the television adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's best selling Scottish time travel novel "Outlander". Presented by Starz/Sony and executive producer Ronald D Moore, the show has been re-commissioned for seasons three and four.

Between seasons one and two of "Outlander", Stephen was featured in two stylistically different shows back to back, both for the BBC. First, he was in two episodes of "Dickensian" (2015) opposite Stephen Rea. Second, was a lead episode of "Musketeers" (2015), shot in Prague, in the role of Borel. Walters received strong accolades for this role.

Early in 2016, Stephen completed filming on Rowan Joffe's "Tin Star" for Sky Atlantic. Filmed in Canada, the production features Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks, and has been described as a contemporary western. Stephen is featured as failed Rock Star Johnny.

During the summer of 2016 Stephen completed filming on two episodes of "Into the Badlands" where he played The Engineer, an American Warlord, opposite Daniel Wu and Nick Frost. At present Stephen is shooting "Little Boy Blue", written for ITV by Jeff Pope, with fellow actor Stephen Graham.

In addition to his acting credits, Stephen is also an accomplished writer and director, with several short films completed. The first is award winning short "Danny Boy", an intense drama where a man must come to terms with his mother's Alzheimer's.

Tony Gardner

Known best for the films "127 Hours," "Zombieland," and"Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa," as well as his work with Daft Punk, Tony Gardner began his film career working on "Michael Jackson's Thriller" under the auspices of Rick Baker.

His very first independent FX job was an animatronic Half-Corpse for Dan O'Bannon's "The Return of the Living Dead," followed by Chuck Russell's feature film remake of "The Blob." Tony quickly established a reputation for delivering innovative effects work, and was quickly considered one of the most creative and reliable artists in Hollywood and abroad.In 1992, Tony created the disfigured title character for director Sam Raimi's classic film,"Darkman." From there, Tony's career took off.

Always once to believe that the on-screen presentation of the effects is equally as important as the design and creation, he has always been directly involved in the filming process on each film or television project, at times storyboarding scenes as well as directing second unit or the effects sequences for the films he's involved with. His collaboration with Daft Punk has led to writing, directing, and co-producing music videos, several of which have been lauded at worldwide festivals.

And his attention to detail and realism has led to investigations launched by the FBI, the LAPD, the Arizona State Police, and Missing Person's Division - all testaments to the quality of his work, albeit in a VERY roundabout way. His realistic attention to detail on Danny Boyle's film "127 Hours" led to screenings being halted and audience members passing out.

His company Alterian, Inc. is located in Los Angeles, California.

Frank Cottrell Boyce

Frank Cottrell Boyce is one of the most respected screenwriters working in the English film industry. After serving as the television critic for the magazine "Living Marxism," he met Michael Winterbottom and the two collaborated on "Forget About Me" (1990). Winterbottom had made five more films based on Boyce's screenplays, "Butterfly Kiss" (1995), "Welcome to Sarajevo" (1997), "The Claim" (2000), "24 Hour Party People" (2002), "Code 46" (2003), and "A Cock and Bull Story" (2005). Boyce has also collaborated with the directors Danny Boyle "Millions" (2004), Alex Cox's "Revenger's Tragedy" (2002), and Anand Tucker "Hilary and Jackie" (1998).

In the words of film critic Roger Ebert, whom he interacted online at Ebert's old CompuServe chat group in the early 1990s, Frank Cottrell Boyce is "arguably the most original and versatile screenwriter in [England]." Boyce has participated in Ebert's Internet forum and on "The Claim" website as he doesn't regard himself as a professional filmmaker, but more like a very enthusiastic fan. In his spare time, Boyce helps run a small independent movie house, making the popcorn duty and acting as an usher, which includes having to throw people out.

Boyce and Winterbottom began their collaboration when he was working on a script about the dangers of smoking for the same London television company where Winterbottom was working as a trainee editor, a position in which it was hard to make progress due to the seniority system. He was as frustrated as Winterbottom, and to escape their apprenticeship hell, Boyce wrote a spec script for Winterbottom to film. While the movie was never made, it was good enough to get producers interested in the duo.

From a script written by Boyce, Winterbottom made his first theatrical film, "Forget About Me," which was released in 1990. Five years later, they teamed up again for "Butterfly Kiss" (1995), a road movie featuring Amanda Plummer as a homicidal lesbian. Boyce loves the film, which he says was written and shot very quickly.

"Welcome to Sarajevo" (1997), the duo's next effort, was a docudrama about reporters covering the civil war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Boyce's sister's ex-boyfriend was a journalist killed in Sarajevo, and the duo wanted to make a film about the human tragedy of the civil war there. Shot on location in Sarajevo despite great difficulties, Boyce says that the film "was made with great spirit." Both the script and the finished film were unpolished, as they had wanted to shoot the film quickly.

Boyce is a Thomas Hardy fan, and Boyce wrote a script based on Hardy's "The Mayor of Casterbridge" called "Kingdom Come" that was later re-titled "The Claim" (2000) for release. Like Hardy's novel, a man who sells his wife and daughter sets the events of "The Claim" in motion, although a change forced upon the filmmakers resulted in the narrative becoming fuzzy. Boyce was disappointed by the finished film for he believes the potential of the script, which he and Winterbottom worked on for two years, was not fully realized as Boyce had lost control over the script during the development process.

Financed by Pathe for Canadian $20 million, the biggest budget Winterbottom had ever worked with, the money people at Pathe were insistent that showing the man sell his wife and daughter at the beginning of the film would make him an unsympathetic character. Like the Hardy novel, Boyce's script had started out with the Faust-bargain that determined the trio's fate. In the script, the deal comes after a grueling trek through the cruel environment of the Sierra Mountains in which hope is faint and there is no turning back. So as not to lose sympathy for the hero, Pathe demanded that the event happen later in the movie, in flashback.

The scene does come later in the film, and the scene is not as elaborate as Boyce had written, thus dampening the desperation of the young Dillon, the movie's protagonist. There is less of a sense in the film than in the screenplay that there is no turning back from his trek to Kingdom Come, the name on the shack of the lonely miner who will trade his claim for Dillon's wife and baby. Shot at an altitude of 7,000 feet on Alberta's Fortress Mountain in appalling conditions, Winterbottom's ability to shoot the entire script was restricted.

By moving the protagonists' "terrible crime," as Boyce calls it, to the movie's halfway point, the film was rendered unfocused and the theme of the terrible machinations of fate was ungrounded. The result was that the drama suffered. This "crime" against Boyce's script by the producers rendered the film "pointless," Boyce believes, still stung about giving in to the producers and not fighting for his own vision. "The Claim" opened to some fine reviews but was essentially dumped by its North American distributor, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Featuring excellent, Oscar-caliber performances by Peter Mullan and Sarah Polley as father and daughter, and opening with 45 minutes of superb, hypnotic sequences that serve as a visual correlative of the characters' atomization and loneliness in this awesome physical landscape, the film deserved a better fate.

Critic David Thomson was very impressed by "The Claim," both by the drama and the visuals. Winterbottom's director of photographer, xxx xxx, had innovatively photographed the snow using black and white stock that was seamlessly matched to the color footage. The landscapes were as cold and forbidding as any ever caught on film, and foreshadowed the fate of the protagonist Dillon's soul.

"24 Hour Party People" (2002), a free-wheeling, high-spirited movie about the Manchester, England nightclub impresario Tony Wilson, was the Winterbottom-Boyce team's next project. Wilson was the man who helped transform the British music scene in the 1980s after being enthralled by a Sex Pistols concert. Boyce is not an anal retentive-type when it comes to his screen writing, and he freely admits that the script of "24 Hour Party People" was never actually finished. However, he does dispute critics' perceptions that Steve Coogan, who brilliantly limned Wilson in what many assumed was an improvised performance due its freshness, winged it. Wilson's verbal flights of fancy were in fact scripted.

Tony Wilson was a generous soul, eager to spread his good fortune around, which made him an attractive character to Boyce. Fueled by ecstasy, the Manchester music scene exploded like the beer-and-amphetamine rock n' roll scene in Boyce's native Liverpool a generation before. It all comes crashing down, but not before Winterbottom (a native of the Manchester area) and Boyce turned in one of their most entertaining films.

For other filmmakers, Boyce wrote the screenplay for Anand Tucker's "Hilary and Jackie" (1998), the story of cellist Jacqueline du Pre and her sister. The film attracted the attention of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, and Emily Watson and her co-star Rachel Griffiths both won Academy Award nominations as Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, for playing Jackie and Hillary, respectively. Boyce also wrote the screen adaptation of Thomas Middleton's 17th century play "The Revenger's Tragedy" for cult director Alex Cox.

With "Trainspotting" director Danny Boyle, most famous for that film about Edinburgh's heroin addicts, Boyce gave the cinematic world the family film "Millions," in which two small boys find and spend the swag from a train robbery. Boyce was given the honorific "Written by" in the credits, the equivalent of a director's "A film by" but even rarer, showing the respect that he has earned in the industry..

Boyce wrote the script immediately after "Welcome to Sarajevo," but English producers, used to financing quirky, niche films for the art house crowd or mid-Atlantic comedies featuring the likes of Hugh Grant, were wary of a family film as that would mean competing with Hollywood on its own turf. The script didn't' attract the interest of producers until Boyle attached himself to it. Boyle's low-budget zombie chiller "28 Days Later" (2003) had grossed over $45 million at the box office, making him a hot property and "Millions" a go. The movie represents a radical departure in both subject matter and tone for both Boyce and Boyle, a fact pointed out by critics. However, Frank Cottrell Boyle, in an interview with Roger Ebert, told him "it's the destination I've been trying to get to for a long time. " Boyce has turned his screenplay into a novel, which has been published by Macmillan in the UK and by HarperCollins in the US.

The film features its young protagonist conversing matter-of-factly with several saints, whom he is an expert on. Boyle had read an Ebert interview with Martin Scorsese in which the great American director recounted that he'd been influenced by a book detailing the lives of saints, "The Six O'clock Saints." Boyce then reread the dictionary of saints he'd had since childhood and found that there was a plethora of stories there, "narrative cash" he calls it.

In the Ebert interview, Boyce said, "People think of saints as vaguely nice and virtuous but in fact they were often difficult, mad, driven by a different energy..... The thing about the saints is that for nearly 2,000 years they were the popular culture. Those gory, erotic statues you see in old churches are like early cinema...."

Working in a national film industry always teetering on the brink of financial disaster, Boyce is able to ply his craft outside of London, living in Liverpool with his wife and seven children. Boyce thinks he's been lucky in that he's never actually written a hit movie, though the curse of "hit" screen writers is that if they write something that is not subsequently a hit, they have failed. Though Boyce has had his disappointments, he has never failed. "I've never done anything that I had to live up to!"

The films written by the former TV critic for "Living Marxism frequently feature the trope of money and the power it exerts over people. Money, realized in the trading of his wife and child for a gold mine claim, destroys Dillon in "The Claim." The reckless generosity of Tony Wilson sets up his eventual fall in "24-Hour Party People," while in "Millions," children hands out wads of cash before the introduction of the euro would make their loot worthless. Boyce thinks the importance of money in his films is not rooted in Marxism but "from working in the film industry where money is like an actual physical force acting on you all the time - like gravity or something." He describes his life philosophy as "Reckless Generosity," a fusion of Tony Wilson and St. Francis of Assisi.

Frank Cottrell Boyce told Ebert, "I'm not sure that I'm that successful! I think I've probably let others do all the moving and shaking for me. Living far away from London may have something to do with it. People hesitate about calling you down to meetings so you never get sacked. Maybe people don't want to sack someone who's got so many mouths to feed!"

His advice on scriptwriting and actually getting films made is to work with people you like and get on with, rather than selecting people for technical expertise. That way, "[Y]our script usually ends up less mangled."

Michael Winterbottom's forthcoming "A Cock and Bull Story" (2005) is based on Boyce's adaptation of Laurence Sterne's 18th century novel "The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy, Gentleman." The classic novel is the autobiography of a man who never gets around to being born, focusing instead on the events that will propel this new life into the world. In fact, "Tristam Shandy" was the first project that Boyce had ever pitched to Winterbottom.

"The book is about the birth of a baby, and about how all your hopes for the baby are dashed but somehow it doesn't matter."

Boyce says that the movie, which is a movie about the making of a movie, is "quite a warm film about the fun of the film set." Starring Steve Coogan, Boyce claims that it actually is more evocative of Francois Truffaut's "La nuit americaine" (1973) than it is one of Charlie Kaufman's screen writing exercises.

Currently, Boyce is working on an adaptation of "The Odyssey" aimed at a young audience which focuses on Odysseus' son Telemachus. On the advice of his young sons, he is including the interactions of his characters with the gods, something the movie "Troy" neglected.

In terms of the screen writing craft, Frank Cottrell Boyce feels that the much-heralded "Three-Act Structure" for motion picture screenplays is bollocks. He points out that the structures of "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now" are accumulations of anecdotes through which the audience pieces together the storyline by themselves. As for the admonition that writers should only write what they know about, Boyce counters with the example of Shakespeare. One needs not be a king to write "The Tragedy of Richard III."

Essentially, Boyce and his collaborators are in the long-line of screen writers and directors descended form Maurice Tourneur. Tourneur was one of the first in Hollywood to argue against convention in favor of a more artistic, expressionistic cinema free of the formulas of the penny dreadful pulp fiction and other vulgar entertainments of the masses. Like Tourneur, they believe that the audience is smart enough to understand a picture that does not rely on hackneyed formulas. While Boyce had trouble breaking out of the "art film ghetto" with his relatively large-budgeted "The Claim," his dedication to his craft and his principles promise that art house patrons, if not the masses, will be enjoying stimulating entertainments for years to come.

Simon Boswell

Simon Boswell was born in London, UK on October 15th, 1956. He is a film composer with more than 90 films to his credit.

At seventeen Simon went to Pembroke College in Cambridge to study English Literature. Already an accomplished guitarist, and whilst still at college, he was signed by Transatlantic Records in 1975. This resulted in his first solo album, 'The Mind Parasites', a collection of contemporary acoustic songs and instrumentals.

In 1977, at the beginning of punk rock, he formed the band "Advertising". Labelled 'Power Pop' the band was more of an homage to the pop art style of Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground. They toured extensively with Blondie. Following the demise of Advertising, Simon became a record producer both in the UK and Italy. His production of Italian mega star Renato Zero is to this day the biggest selling Italian album of all time. His record productions from the 1980s have influenced many contemporary musicians - notably the sample of the band 23 Skidoo's 'Coup' which became The Chemical Brothers' 'Block Rockin' Beats'.

Recent years have seen him collaborate with many high profile artists for his film projects: Elton John, Dolly Parton and Marianne Faithful, and work with musicians from bands including Blur, Orbital, The Sex Pistols and Echo And The Bunnymen.

Twice BAFTA nominated, and with countless awards from around the world, his prolific film career stretches back to 1985 and his roots in Italian horror with Dario Argento.

Since then he has worked with many of the world's most ambitious directors including Danny Boyle, Michael Hoffman, Clive Barker and Alejandro Jodorowsky and spanned every conceivable genre, from his early work on Italian exploitation movies (Phenomena, Stage Fright) to contemporary thrillers (Shallow Grave, Hackers), horror flicks (Lord of Illusions, Hardware), romances and character studies (Jack & Sarah, This Year's Love, Born Romantic), dramas (In My Father's Den, The War Zone, My Zinc Bed), fantasies (Santa Sangre, Photographing Fairies, Tin Man) and literary classics (A Midsummer Night's Dream, Cousin Bette).

Boswell brings to each new project an energy and distinctiveness that stems from his unconventional background and his own admission that he lives in a 'musical vacuum'. No stranger to live performance as well as the recording studio, he is just as accomplished with electronic and rock music as epic orchestral scores, often combining the two.

His rare forays into TV have often managed to shock: The Lakes (BAFTA nominated), "Pornography: The Musical" and "Songbirds" - both collaborations with film-maker Brian Hill and poet Simon Armitage.

In Autumn 2006, after 12 years in the making, Simon's album 'Close Your Eyes' was released independently via his own Flick Records. 'I cut up my previous scores into bits and re-assembled them as new songs mixing full orchestra with musicians from Blur and The Kills and spoken word parts for some of the actors and directors I have worked with along the way - including Ewan McGregor, Ray Winstone, Goran Visnij, Dario Argento and Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Simon continues to work on his own unique art project called "Blink!" - an audio-visual installation of portraits extracted from news footage, looped to last forever, and individually scored with their own soundtracks. This was first exhibited at the ICA in London in 2002 on 4 simultaneous cinema-sized screens.

Simon's first project with the Vatican, Santo Subito, is a film in collaboration with the Vatican setting the speeches, and for the first time, the singing of Pope John Paul II to Simon's music and visuals.

She has interviewed some of the biggest film stars on the Red Carpet in LA. After a season as a professional cheerleader, she landed a spot on Taylor Swift's tour. She credits this as the turning point and springboard for her belief in herself and in her career. She wanted to be an actress since first doing a play as a little girl and watching old Hollywood films with her mom.

Renee has had entertainment in her blood since she could walk, literally. "My Mom said I learned to walk by walking towards my reflection on TV... so I figured between that and being named after my favorite soap star on "Days of our Lives" my fate was sealed as an actress. It was either that or have a lot of drama in my life. I chose actress." Her mom, a choir director and vocal/piano coach allowed her the opportunity to perform in multiple productions and gave her a love for the arts. Renee grew up surrounded by music, theatre, and performing on stages. She excelled in companies and productions, winning numerous awards as a studied actress, dancer, and singer. She was always the first person in the studio and the last to leave. This strong professional drive to be the best at what she does continues to drive her today. Renee's professionalism on set and her ability to take direction has received compliments from Angie Harmon, Rob Royston, Danny Boyle, and other seasoned professionals. Her first big film break was " Stockholm" directed by Angie Harmon, whom discovered Renee in the music video "Til My Last Day" by Justin Moore. Since then, Renee has appeared in numerous shorts and features, as well as working as a series regular in "Mafia Law" with John Schuck. She has starred in "Young Blade", "Nashville Notes", and guest starred on the award-winning web-series "Johnny Dynamo" with Tiny Lister and Terry Kiser. Her flexibility to travel has allowed her the opportunity to host shows on both sides of the country from "BBQuest" for a network in Nashville to red carpet events in LA.

Renee was selected to study Episodic TV acting with acting coach Bridget Berger, the acting coach on the series "Nashville", whom she studied with while living in Nashville. She also began private coaching with Regina Moore for TV and red carpet hosting. Renee has worked with Image consultant Suzanne Skinner, and branding coach David Perry.

Mandy Del Rio

Mandy Del Rio has always had a passion for performing.

Raised in the small coastal town of Pacifica, California located just south of San Francisco, Mandy began dancing, singing, and acting as a child. She continued to fuel these passions by performing in high school plays, winning first place in a local drama competition.

Mandy first appeared in front of the camera as an extra in Disney's "Angels in the Outfield", which inspired her at a young age to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. As an adult, Mandy has performed vocals with various bands and has worked both behind the camera and in front of it on numerous music videos as well as the feature film "Infliction." Her passion for music became her full-time career in 2010 when she took on various projects, assisting indie musicians in booking tours and helping with their marketing and promotion.

Influenced by her parents' love of music and movies, Mandy and her four brothers were exposed to all different genres of film and styles of music. Her mother's mantra was, "Life without music would be a mistake." Not typical of a child of her generation, Mandy fell in love with the sounds of rock, Motown, and soul music. She was influenced at an early age by artists such as The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Smokey Robinson, The Supremes, Otis Redding and Sam Cooke.

From the time she was old enough to sit up, Sunday mornings were often spent watching "Matinee at the Bijou" with her father, where she first learned to appreciate classic black and white cinema.

Keith Alan Morris

Keith Alan Morris was born in South Bend, Indiana on October 9, 1972. Keith honed his skills as an independent filmmaker in New York City. He has been a brand strategist, digital media specialist, and college professor. After his latest movie Gutter King got distribution then went viral and reached over 3.2 million torrents online, he is working on a live-action/CG animated feature set in a futuristic New Orleans.

His most notable films include Gutter King, Flying Tiger and The Clinic, all of which screened at the Cannes Film Fest market and offered distribution. He also wrote and directed the documentary R.U.B.s in the Guggenheim Museum's "Art of the Motorcycle" exhibit.

Gutter King was his first breakthrough feature internationally and nominated for 3 awards in 2010. It has been compared to the early films of Martin Scorsese in that "the violence is dealt with extreme care and respect, as opposed to the superficiality with which we are used to seeing from directors like Guy Ritchie, Danny Boyle or David Fincher." The film later reached #159 on IMDB's MOVIEmeter rankings in June 2010, behind Zombieland but ahead of Back to The Future.

Other work: "Flying Tiger" is a family film about a lowly artifact hunter on the quest for the first flying human in history. It screened at the Cannes Film Fest market. Morris' dark comedy "The Clinic," about an underground treatment center for the brokenhearted, won Best Screenplay for a Feature Film (out of 180 films) at the NY International Independent Film Fest. Both films had distribution offers at the Cannes Film Fest that far outweighed the production costs of the films.

Morris was born Keith Alan Morris in South Bend, Indiana, the son of Ronald and Susan Morris. He grew up in Indiana where he attended Adams High School and Niles First Assembly High School in Niles, MI, where he was Salutatorian. He won a scholarship to Kalamazoo College to study Political Science and Theater Communications where he made numerous short films and two feature films, The Outside Man and The In Crowd, which won him the Cooper Award and Schneider Prize.
