Rick was delighted to win a place at the hotly-contested 2014 Edinburgh International Film Festival Talent Lab. Providing a chance to meet rising stars of tomorrow as well as a mouth-watering line up of industry professionals, it gave Rick the opportunity to pitch his credentials to the great and the good of the UK film-making community.

‘With a mix of masterclasses, speed-dating meetings with industry leaders and fascinating discussions with fellow delegates, it was an inspiring, motivating and affirming experience’

Rick adds ‘I’d have chopped off my index finger to get on this Talent Lab… though as this finger is pretty crucial for my writing, it would be silly to do this’.
