Professional Screenwriter and Director Alasdair Mackay


This website will hopefully give you an insight into the inner workings of the mind of an award winning Film-Maker.

I’ve been living this crazy life since 2011, when I started training as an actor and fell in love with the process of developing stories from earlier on – more specifically the very beginning. The blank page.

I have written, directed, produced and assistant directed on a number of projects from student films, in the very beginning, to festival standard short films and features.

As a Director I won the prestigious Best in Fest award at Triforce Short Film Festival at BAFTA in December 2016 for GLOW, while I have also directed one feature film, so far, with others in the early stages of pre-production.

As a Screenwriter I have had 3 of my screenplays developed into films considered good enough to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 and 2014. I have also written numerous feature scripts, and TV pilots, with on-going negotiations with a number of production companies who want to green-light their production.

More significantly –  I have had a lot of fun in the years since starting this adventure and will continue to move forwards in my career, always with a smile on my face.
