Den of Geek Interview

I did an interview with Sarah Dobbs of Den of Geek for Grabbers the other day. I’m treating it as my final interview for the foreseeable future so I’m pleased it’s with them. I love Den of Geek. Here’s the interview. Enjoy!

IFTAs

IFTA

Grabbers has been nominated for four IFTAs! If you’re not aware of the IFTAs, they’re the Irish Film and Television Awards, similar to the UK’s BAFTAs. We’ve been nominated for Best Film, while Ruth was nominated for Best Actress, Bronagh was nominated for Best Supporting Actress and I was nominated for Best Feature Script. I’m thrilled. 

The awards take place on February 9th and they’ll be broadcast live on Irish TV. Here’s the full list of nominees for 2013 IFTA awards.

Grabbers in 60 Seconds. A review.

Grabbers is now a game! And it’s FREE! From midnight tonight you can download the game to your iPhone or Andriod and get to flattening as many Grabblings and/or King Grabbers as you can in sixty seconds. You can play as one of three main characters, as O’Shea (Richard Coyle), Lisa (Ruth Bradley) or Smith (Russell Tovey). Never did I imagine the characters I dreamed up on a rainy Saturday would end up playable in a game. Crazy days.
You can find out more about the game on the official site: grabbersgame.com!

Last night in Trieste.

Outside my local cinema in Cork during Grabbers Irish cinema release. It’s the cinema I went to as a kid, and still go to when I’m back in Cork.

I was in Bo’ness recently to introduce Grabbers and do a screenwriting masterclass at The Hippodrome, Scotland’s oldest cinema. Thanks to Jonathan Melville (far right) for easing me through my first solo Q&A too.
