Director Darrell AldenI’ve always loved films, so when a general casting call went out for former soldiers I answered it, and found myself working for eight months on HBO’s Band of Brothers, alongside industry heavyweights Stephen Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Damien Lewis, Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy. It was, quite possibly, one of the best gigs I’ve ever had. The experience really inspired me and a few months later I enrolled at a London film school, making several short films and a documentary about life on set, using previously unseen footage.

My first novel Invasion was an idea conceived whilst undertaking research for a short film script and currently resides at number #1 on the Amazon UK kindle charts. I’ve also written, produced and directed live action trailers for both The Angola Deception and its sequel Fortress. Right now I’m working on a feature film project which I’ve written and will be directing.

Here are my shorts. I hope you enjoy them. Scroll down to see the Band of Brothers behind the scenes footage.
