Herbert Garland & Lawrence of Arabia, feature film extract – Writer (WINNER – Royal Society of Chemistry Screenplay Competition, 2013)
For this contest, the RSC asked us to re-write or re-imagine the film Lawrence of Arabia with forgotten hero Herbert Garland (who worked closely with TE Lawrence during the ‘revolt in the desert’) featuring in the screenplay.
I elected to write a combination of both new scenes featuring Garland and also to insert him into existing scenes from the classic film with notes to provide context.
Here is my winning entry:
The Deal, feature film extract – Writer (LONG-LISTED – 50 Kisses Screenplay Competition, 2013)

‘The Deal’ was my entry, which was long-listed:
