Martin is a producer, director and scriptwriter. His latest short film 'Othello', a film noir adaptation of Shakespeare's classic play won 'best film inspired by Shakespeare' at the Shakespeare Film Festival in September 2018. Festival patron Sir Kenneth Branagh said of the film: "Great assurances in the performances..." & "There is a real confidence to the direction..." & "Visually impressive, and even lush, it has a great maturity cinematically...". 'Close To Heaven' was produced in association with Directors UK and ARRI and was official selection for the Cornwall Film Festival 2013. 'Dear Mr Cameron' (a social statement about the UK riots of 2011), screened at the British Urban Film Festival 2012 and was accepted into the London Metropolitan Archives as a work of historical importance. Martin recently set up the production company GO BIG Pictures with a focus towards social impact storytelling for positive change and is currently developing several projects which will start production in 2019. Martin is a champion for class diversity in the film industry and a member of Directors UK.
