Writer Biography - Simon X. Frederick

Simon X. Frederick

A screenwriter who has been working in film & TV production and development for about 5 years. Pushing and pulling his way into professional screenwriting.

I moved to London in 2015 after realising my master's in Biomechanics was more likely to be a fabulously bland piece of art on the wall, rather than get me a job. I didn't realise that all it takes to get started in the film industry is adoration for film, addiction to the pursuit and a drive to progress without having any money for 5 years. Thankfully, I had all those traits and a friend coaxed me down to London to pursue the dream job career. It took me until working in development, improving my knowledge of craft and business, that I accidentally became enamoured with screenwriting. Now I can’t think of any other career path, no matter how long it will take.

I am fascinated by so much of the world that I cannot pin a specific area I want to specialise in. So far I've written in fantasy, sci-fi, historical and contemporary worlds. I've written drama, comedy, thrillers and crime. I'd say the through-line for all is I am interested in the psychology of an individual and how society influences us. Each of my projects also has a unique tone and a cinematic and stylish design.
