Lewis Dowling - Freelance Writer and Director
An abstract view, eyes looking around corners. A careful ear, listening for the slightest change. A reaching touch, fingers feeling beyond the edges of the box. A cautious sniff, to catch the subtle scent of success. A taste of the absurd, of originality, of that special something. But mostly, a sense of what's important: The story. This is mine.

Key Skills
Optimism and imagination swirl together. They spiral upward, mixing and churning inside their catalyst. Motivated, the catalyst begins. It cannot stop the words, as they tumble out; spilling onto pages one after another. They fall from lips, directing others toward the same goal; they fall from fingers, typing fast and purposefully; they fall from imagination, unrelenting, unstopping, forevermore. The stories flow, into the avid temple. There they are cut, stretched, and finalised. Then the catalyst can settle, relaxing amid musical melodies, watching the finished media. But not for long, for imagination and optimism are a potent mix; a chain reaction, nuclear and critical. Soon, inevitably, it shall start again.

Interests
Reading and Writing - I began writing as a child, and have continued ever since. I love stories, and the tiny details that can change someone's perception. Computer Games - Games, unlike movies, have a unique approach to storytelling. They immerse the player into the world, and allow them to escape to another reality. Music and Film - I love music, especially slow rock, ballads that tell a complete story in a few minutes. Films, who doesn't like them. Movies that make you think, like Twelve Monkeys, they're my kind of film. Creating Photoshop Wallpapers - Abstract and surreal images fascinate me, and I've recently taken to creating wallpapers, based on these themes, as a hobby. It helps improve my skills, and it's interesting to see what can be created. Parkour/Climbing/Rollerblading - Because we're all kids at heart.
