And… Action

Hi, and thanks for visiting my new website.

For those of you who don’t know, my name is Matthew Cooper and this website is dedicated to my work as an independent filmmaker and director.

I’ve a long career as a UK script consultant and script writer for hire and I have a separate website for that facet of my career. Have a look at if you like.

I’ve started this website because I’m just about to launch a career as a director; with my feature length horror film ‘Markham’ about to be released (you can buy it on DVD on this website very soon).

So, I thought I’d put together some sort of manifesto for my first blogpost, set out what I intend to do and how I intend to do it. So here we go…

I’m going to attempt to shoot one low budget horror film every year, for the next fifteen years. I intend to finance the films myself, and retain as much control of the films as possible, from pre-production right through to the release.

I’m going to, as much as possible document this, and how I do it, on this website.  And starting next week I’m going to be blogging about how we made Markham, prior to it’s release…

So, please keep checking back, and take care in these odd covid crazy times.
