ABOUT SIMON OLIVIER
Simon was born in North London but grew up on the South Coast of England.
His love of storytelling and cinema has seen him explore various guises since graduating with a Film Studies (BA [Hons.]) degree in 1999. After bouts in telecine houses and production companies, then as a researcher and a camera assistant on many commercial, music video and film shoots, he turned to writing. He has been commissioned to rewrite several screenplays, by companies from London to Los Angeles, and cut his storytelling teeth writing coverage for Summit Entertainment in LA.
He began producing and directing music videos for local bands in 2008.
This lead to him directing branded content for Bacardi UK and Bacardi Europe, documentary in New Orleans, his feature documentary Eva Cassidy: Timeless Voice, which premiered on Sky Arts, and his short films, 'Feminine Incite' (winner of two Awards Of Excellence for its lead actors at the Depth-Of-Field International Film Festival) and 'Burned' (currently in post-production) in 2017.
'Boogie Man', a feature film he wrote and co-created with its director Andrew Morahan, was the first feature project of Simon's to go before the cameras, and is due for release in early 2018. He is currently preparing 'The Dead Letter', his debut feature film as Writer/Director, for 2018 production. He has several other feature projects in various stages of development.
