Screen Writer - Neville Steenson of Northern Ireland

By Denise Kaminsky

Neville Steenson began writing short stories over six years ago, but produced nothing solid, though he has always been a movie freak-- especially when it comes to horror. He was working as a Joiner when he first began writing, looking over the short stories that he had written and thinking that some of these would great movie scripts.
From there, he began to flesh out the stories. He had written them into something much longer, with the possibility of seeing them on the big screen, and had completed three screenplays when an industrial accident resulted in him losing a finger and a career as a Joiner.

From then on, he started working day and night on writing never, looking back. Neville’s writing is within many different genres ranging from Drama, Comedy to Horror.
However, horror is where he has had the most fun and feels more at home.

Neville has also done a bit of acting in a number of short films, but there nothing like the feeling of creating something from your own mind onto the page, and then the screen... that is where the real fun is
Currently in post production are some of the short films that are a dark comedy series which Neville wrote and directed.
Along with the short, a full length horror film titled Junkyard Dogs is in  pre-production now. It is a story about four friends that travel via car from Canada to New York for a friend’s wedding. Then, due to some unforeseen events, their car is towed away and they find themselves having to go to a nearby junkyard to get it back. That is when they meet a twisted family who run the junkyard in question, who have a taste for metal and blood! It gets a little nasty from there.

Neville says, "After submitting this to director Glenn Webber, who had put out a call for someone to develop an idea he had, we talked and I got the job. The idea really struck me as something I really wanted to do, being a huge fan of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deliverance. This project this was something I knew I had to be part of because of the sheer terror those films instilled in their audience."


At the present time, there has been no release date set, but they are aiming to have it out some time next year. Most likely, it will be the end of the year, but it will be worth the wait.
