Alice D Cooper

Writer & FIlmmaker

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a multi-media writer from an advertising copywriting background, frequently writing coporate and conference films (portfolio site: http://alicewrites.co.uk). But I'm also a columnist, a sports journalist, short story writer, publisher of two humour books, and associate lecturer on the MA Screenwriting at the London College of Communication.

I also write scripts, winning awards for shorts and features, and have had six options deals for features. I was commissioned to write as-live narration for over 80 episodes of "Ninja Warrior" for Challenge TV/Pintsize Pictures. 

Since 2010, I've directed 15 short films, with 14 from my own scripts. One drama was for a museum installation, another seven dramas, three poetry films, a charity film and a docushort for Hurcheon Films, and two corporates for Schmick.tv.  The Hurcheon Films dramas shorts are thriving at festivals and showcases winning multiple awards. I am planning to direct further corporate films.  

Since February 2016, I've completed a docushort "Writing the peace", and presented a one-woman theatre version of my 2014 short film "A Small Dot On The Western Front" at the Tea House Theatre in London as writer, director and producer.  Angela Ferns played Dorothy Lawrence, the only woman to serve in the British Army in France during World War 1. I've now written this as a feature film project. I also directed my play "The Waiting Room" in the One Act Play Festival at the Stockwell Playhouse in June 2019.

In 2018, I shot a film for the Visible Poetry Project in New York with online screenings as well as showcases in the USA, UK and China later this year. In 2019, I made a micro short and a beekeeping documentary, while I'm in pre-production for three shorts in 2020 (lockdown permitting). Collaborations with other creatives include a comedy webseries and a kids' sitcom whilst also working on other TV and feature scripts with my agent.  

I'm looking for creative challenges as well as collaborators to make web series, branded work and features as a writer and/or director.  I'm also a freelance writer and/or freelance director for hire.

My literary agent is Meg Davies at Ki Agency
