Dark Sense feature project

The feature film DARK SENSE (previously FIRST AND ONLY) completed its six-week shoot in May 2017. Director Magnus Wake and producer Simone Bett have done a fantastic job bringing all the elements of this production together to reach this advanced stage. I've seen the completed film and it looks amazing. Magnus took the Dark Sense project to the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2017 and had a number of great meetings. I adapted Peter Flannery's Kindle-published bestseller, First and Only, into the screenplay, along with Geoff Holder.
