Professional Screenwriter and Director Alasdair Mackay


This website will hopefully give you an insight into the inner workings of the mind of a multiple 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 and more recently Best Drama for MOTHERHOOD at the 2018 International Microfilm Festival in Nottingham. I have 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.
