Bukola Bakinson

Writer and Filmmaker

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

I began writing poetry in 2007 and gradually moved on to script and screenplay writing in 2010. Having worked closely with talented people in theatre production, I found myself drawn to filmmaking.

An Auteur in-the-making.

I'm nurturing my craft in storytelling as a writer for TV and Film in the meantime, while I pull necessary resources together to continue to write and direct content I feel most passionate about.

In February and March 2015, I screened my first feature film, Heads or Tails, at The Ritzy in Brixton; and in September 2015 my short film, Where is my Joy, was screened at the BUFF Channel 4 Media Day.

I joined a writers room in May 2017 and was the Assistant Script Editor for a 6 part series commissioned by Sky One called 'Bulletproof' - out now!

ScreenSkills tests passed.
