Writer Biography - Steven Raby

Writing has always been a passion for Steven who discovered his love of screenwriting in his twenties. He would help out on the sets of friends' micro budget short films by doing anything he could from continuity or prop design to making the sandwiches. Witnessing the magic of film, seeing words on a page transformed into movies left him spellbound and wanting to create some of that magic himself. Born in London and based in Manchester he has written numerous short films and is currently working on his first feature script.

Writer Statement

With so many underrepresented minorities in film and television my initial goal with 'So What Happens Now' was to create two roles for actors over fifty. Once I had the location and characters in mind the story just flowed. I fell in love with Dave and Maureen and their story. I hope you do too.
