Writer Biography - James Anthony Ford

I am an Australian scriptwriter based in Melbourne with a keen interest in developing short or feature films, emphasizing on genre's ranging from docudrama, suspense to black comedy. I also have a curious mind for further investigating the 'found -footage' approach to film.

For the past few years I have also been involved in various solo and group visual art exhibitions showcasing a series of shadow and assemblage installation works.
In addition, I also recently had a suspense fiction novel published through Amazon. (Link to preview is provided)
