From Bullied to Black Belt,
a short film.
In an effort to bring the proposed feature film based on
Simon's best selling book, he and his family travelled to the
States to film a short documentary. The filming proved to
be enduring as hours of interviews took place, followed by a
gruelling training session in the Pound of Pound gym which
saw Simon and his daughter Luka go through their paces in both ring and cage.

Simon on the BBC.
Simon has spoken many times both local and national radio but he says by far the interview he enjoyed the most was with the BBC's Jason Mohammad about his experiences with both bullies and his writing.

Liquid Bullet Productionz
My latest Podcast was for the guys at Liquid Bullet Productionz and in particular, top man Lee Mayo.
I think t is fair to say Lee and I hit t off right away and he was great at drawing out my story and producing the podcast/short film in which I talked about dealing with violence from the playground right up to IRA and hardcore gangsters.
What made it more interesting is that Lee had his own incredible tale to tell and was honoured when he asked me to write it.

Trust me, you will love what Lee did.

FROM THE ARCHIVES.
Simon recently took part in two Podcasts (more planned for 20210in which he spoke about his experiences and again pulled no punches. He was honest about his fears, his shortfalls and his alcohol abuse but was also forthright about his well earned strengths, victories and awards.
As ever his goal was to use his previous abuses, dilemmas and traumas whilst showing how he came through them to be what he is today, all in an effort to help the listener do the same.
First up was to hot him was UK martial artist Dan Holloway followed by the USA's Benjamin Myers. Click either image to the right to select your choice of Podcast.
Despite the Fear
This very short doc-film was produced some time ago and is a very honest insight into the fears Simon has faced and overcome, including a particularly bad time when Simon was at loggerheads with a gang of local drug dealers. We will let the film do the talking for itself. Click the image to view.
SCRIPTS/STORIES IN DEVELOPMENT
Simon is currently working on several writing projects that are both gritty and emotional drams set in British towns. One 'It Only Takes a Phone Call' is a short films whilst 'One More Round' could possibly be adapted for stage or screen.
There is also a full 90 minute feature film script in place for From Bullied to Black Belt.

Based on From Bullied to Black Belt.

We are offering either a full buy out purchase or an option with a view to working with us on this project.
We are also looking for a producer to make this incredible true story hit the screens.
A possible tv series will also be considered.

ONE PUNCH KILL
It Only Takes a Phone Call
Possible short film.
Steven is a honest, family man who bears the burden of his 'wannabe gangster' father, a supposedly local hardman.
When Steven inadvertently falls foul of some heavies, he is turn between resolving the situation legally and peacefully or by taking his father's option of using violence by bringing in equally bad people, doing so by making the ever threatening 'phone call.'
A classic good versus evil story with far reaching implications for anyone tempted to enter a dark ford of world of criminal retribution.
One Last Round
Set in a English working man's pub with a cast of just three main players makes it an ideal setting for a stage production.
A fighter with a drink problem, coming toward the end of his career has a dreadful decision to make to bring in the pennies.
Make a low key appearance in the ring for what he knows will be his last fight or use his gift of fighting for the violent delights of local gangsters and do their bidding for them.
Sitting at a table in a grim bar, he pours his heart out to his wife and his best friend, seeking their thoughts on his choice.
One Last Round is a tale of the tough decision facing all men coming to the end of their 'summer.'
