Since his selection for the Carlton Television New Writers programme, Andy has written for film, radio and television and has taught on various MA scriptwriting courses in the UK and in Finland.

Recent credits include the afternoon play THE MAN WHO JUMPED FROM SPACE (An extraordinary story – The Independent, Exemplar… filmic… – The Stage, Fascinating – The Observer) and A SECOND TO MIDNIGHT (2x60’), both for BBC Radio 4.

His latest short film THE HIVE (The Film Council / Vision & Media) has recently screened at BAFTA and Encounters (Bristol) and his previous, THE CULL, was nominated for Best British Short Film at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2010.

Finance is being secured for mystery-thriller feature script CLOSE TO THE EDGE (Film Council, Finite Productions) and, this year, Andy was one of 11 professional writers chosen from over 700 to win a meeting with Shine Pictures/New Regency as part of their Big Idea scheme. The project, sci-fi-thriller THE RETURNED, was subsequently chosen as a finalist on TRIANGLE, a cross-regional (& Film Council) feature development scheme, and is now in development with Helium Films.
