Derek Boyes is a writer and director who graduated from the National Film and Television School in 2004. His ambitious and highly imaginative graduation short, The Happiness Thief, was officially selected in competition at Cannes that same year and went on to play at film festivals across the globe. Since then, Derek has directed shorts for the BBC, BFI, UK Film Council and Screen South while developing a slate of feature films. His first first feature screenplay, Blackout, was a gritty neo-noir thriller optioned by Ipso Facto Films and developed by Moxie Makers as part of The Big Pitch scheme in 2008. He is currently developing a feature length version of his soon to be completed 3D family/fantasy short - The Infectious Imagination Of Henry Bramble.
