Writer and Producer of The Kite Flyer (Thom Cross, 2007, Barbados), has been a Medical Practitioner in a General Practice for 15 years. The Kite Flyer is Sean's first effort at film, having had no previous experience in film, drama or creative writing. He started the script about 15 years ago just as a creative writing exercise. About four years ago, he took the dialog to Director, Thom Cross, and progressed towards making it a film about four years ago. He continued during this period to acquire further information on filmmaking. The film was funded out of pocket - about US$20,000.
