Damian - Scholar

MA TV Fiction Writing at Glasgow Caledonian University

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
I have been incredibly fortunate to receive the scholarship and funding from Warner Bros. Creative Talent to study a Masters in Television Fiction Writing at Glasgow Caledonian University. Since I first heard of the course, I knew instantly that I wanted to be a part of it and I am beyond thrilled to be representing the Warner Bros. family here in Glasgow.
What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
It means everything to me to be a part of this prestigious group of creative minds and hard-workers. When starting out in this industry, it can be incredibly difficult to find like-minded people and a good support network. Knowing I have the backing of one of the world’s most esteemed entertainment company; who actively nurture and encourage new talent, is beyond words.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
I am incredibly ambitious and driven and I want to achieve many great things in my career. I would like to pen a comedy-drama that uncovers the funny, warm, culturally diverse and aesthetically stunning side to the city of Glasgow. I want my work to touch people on a more visceral level; to make them laugh, cry, then laugh again – then phone their friends to chat about it. But right now, I want to be known for being a new and exciting young talent who wants to experience everything this industry has to offer.

Who do you most admire in the industry?
I am mostly drawn to people and media content which can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. Two of my heroes in the industry has to be Royle Family creator Caroline Aherne and Pulling’s Sharon Horgan. Two women who’s comedic timing and rich narratives know no boundaries.
Tell us something about yourself most people would be surprised by?
When I was 16 I did stand-up comedy at the Edinburgh Festival and thought I was going to be an overnight sensation! Alas, it was back to school the following day.
